I found nothing wrong with WLE 2011 (other than Messenger getting even more bloated, but that has been a trend for years now). The ribbon interface was great in Live Mail, actually.
Same problem here. I found Windows Live Messenger 2011 would open up full screen and that you could not see your offline contacts. And it would crash when I made video calls or when someone was calling me.
From what I remember I think you could also log into your Facebook and My Space account on Messenger 2011,in the Beta version. And there is also the option to send your contacts an offline video message.And contacts who were on Messenger 209 could play video messages sent from 2011 version.
But somehow Messenger 2011 and 2012 version does not have that homely look of Messenger 2009 version. So WLE 2011 and 2012 is just not the same as the old version of WLE. And I can see why a lot of people don't want to upgrade to it.
And no, I don't like the Ribbon in Windows Live Mail 2011 and 2012 version either. And I don't like the Ribbon in Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 and 2012 version.
So it seems that WLE 2009 version is the only right version to install. Andrea Borman.
