Windows Mail Pop-Up Bug

You’d think for all the effort that went into Vista and updating a large number of the embedded applications they would have spent at least a little time making sure any previous bugs in Windows Mail were fixed.

I use Outlook Express, or Windows Mail as it’s now called, to read newsgroups. One thing I do quite a bit is drag it over to my secondary monitor, right click on a newsgroup and then select Properties. On XP this was highly annoying because the pop-up always shows up on the main monitor, regardless of where Outlook Express is.

Enter Microsoft Mail and I make the silly assumption that since Windows Mail has been updated they’ll have fixed this little bug. Nope. It’s still there in all it’s unpolished glory. Nothing quite says “attention to detail” like ignoring a bug that’s been in an application for 5+ years.
