What is winmail.exe?

Windows Mail is an email and newsgroup client included in Windows. Windows Mail is not a component of Internet Explorer, unlike Outlook Express, which was bundled with Internet Explorer. Unlike its predecessor Outlook Express, Windows Mail does not have WebDAV, making it incapable of accessing web-based email services through WebDAV.


winmail.exe executes as a process with the local user's privileges. This version is designed to run on Windows Vista.
