Finally someone who gets that I just want a simple email client. I use other tools for my scheduling needs and don't need or want them integrated with all email accounts, thank you very much. And Microsoft, I was willing to live with Live Mail until you forced your ribbons on me yet again in your latest update. When will you people get that searching for functionality in an unfamiliar App is way easier with words (like on menus) than it is with obscure pictures on icons?
