Default Windows Mail in 7

anyone noticed that even in new RTM builds windows mail app is still in C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Mail.

MS a while ago said that they would remove it, funny thing is all exe and dll have the same version number as the windows build. but windows mail simply will not start.

just an FYI

Half assed job of removing it. We all know Windows 7 isn't built from the ground up... just more evidence of MS being lazy.

I wonder if you copied the Vista files over if it would start...

Maybe they just broke something in the exe.
