I generally don't use Windows Mail/Windows Live Mail with my Windows 7 Professional installation. Would it be a good idea to disable it? If so, how?

There is no need to disable if you don't have it set up and aren't using it. Scott.

Scott, check this out. Yes, Scott, I have both winmail.exe and SetPoint. I'm thinking about uninstalling SetPoint.

Yeah... that program doesn't run on windows 7 systems without "help" starting <g>

However I doubt it's hurting anything so if you like the setpoint software than I'd just put it on ignore :)

I have uninstalled SetPoint. Judging from what I've observed via Process Explorer, both SetPoint and that winmail.exe thing were interfering with my PC's ability to go into hibernation after a certain period of inactivity.
