Re: windows mail

hello there;

well, when you try creating a rule,

when you choose a message criteria,
jaws reads,
checked, and unchecked,
however, when you go to move to the next,
portion of creating the rule, one gets an error, one or more items needs to be 
checked.

I no I had a heck of a time trying to create rules.

I'm thinking that the reason is?
the windows mail is a 32bit program, working on a 64bit machine, not a good fit.
 at least these were my findings when I tried to setup message filters on a 
64bit machine.

  David,
  I'm still not clear about what is meant by "check boxes don't work."  Is it 
that the screen readers can't see them, or is it that their checked or 
unchecked state can't be changed?

  If I won't be able to create message rules in Windows Mail on my 64-bit 
Windows 7 system, that would be a show-stopper for me since I depend on these 
rules to filter email from several lists into appropriate folders.

    Hi Gary;

    no, the problem is;
    on windows7 64bit machines,
    when one sets up windows mail;
    the check boxes when creating message rules don't work.
    otherwards, it's almost impossible to create message filters.
    I've seen this behavior on a few machines now.

      Hi Elf,
      When you say that the screen readers are refusing to work with check 
boxes in Windows Mail, do you mean that the screen readers can't detect them at 
all, or is it that their state can't be changed?  In the past, I've seen with 
Outlook Express that sometimes JAWS didn't automatically read the state of the 
check box in the Message Rules dialog, but the state could be determined with 
the JAWS cursor and then changed with the Spacebar.

        go to my grab bag website and there is a link for the windows mail in 
win 7 there, a note I recently found out, if you set this up on a 64 bit 
machine setting mail rules in windows mail is nearly impossible to do, the 
check boxes are refusing to work for most of the screen readers in this set up!

          Good morning 

          When I go to
          http://www.sendspace.com/file/jfjvxw

          I get the following message:  
          Sorry, the file you requested is not available.
          Possible reasons include: 

          - File date limit has expired. 
          - File was not successfully uploaded. 

          Please contact the uploader and ask them to upload the file again. 
sendspace is not able to help you in this matter. 

          I have Windows 7 Home Premium and would very much like to use Windows 
Mail. 

          Is there a new link with the files I would need? 

          Thanks 

          Marty

            hmmm, ok, do you need the one to set it up on windows 7, or a 
general tutorial on it's use? have sources on both but don't want to spew out 
more links than needed. 

            and one fault in windows mail I just found out about today!

            using it on a 64 bit system gives problems with making filters in 
it. the check boxes are almost entirely inaccessible unfortunately.
