I am still using and liking Windows Live Mail (WLM) on my Win 10 Pro computer. Has anyone switched to the new Win 10 Mail program; if so, how do you like it compared to WLM? Is it easy to learn/use after using WLM for years? Thanks in advance.......

(Yes I know that WLM is no longer supported by Microsoft.)

I have tried the Mail app but only briefly as I use Outlook.

I didn't see any major issues when I looked. As soon as I opened all my contacts, folders and emails were present. I assume that everything was automatically imported from Outlook.

Bottom line is that I have not used it enough to give a good opinion but I feel that I could probably get used to it without too much effort.

I've tried it a bit but I used Windows Live Mail 2012 for years and still used it when first using 10. Then I tried Outlook and was happy with that apart from not being able to have my RSS Feeds, not sure which update but I then started having problems with a couple of my email accounts.

In Mail I couldn't have RSS Feeds and even though my email accounts are correct after closing it for a while after I'd keep getting a message to say my email account was out of date.

I'm now using Thunderbird and I can get all my accounts and my RSS Feeds. I'll still use the others now and then but think I've found my main one for now.
