hello lirus, welcome to AutoIt and to the forum.

first, the forum you post your topic, "Example Scripts", is not for asking help. it's for you to provide useful scripts that others may benefit from. report your own thread and ask a moderator to transfer your thread to the "General Help and Support" forum.

second - as a general rule of thumb for scripting - if it can be managed behind the scene, like registry settings or manipulating settings files, then it is better than using UI automation. this is because clicking and sending keys is not robust and can be crippled by many things, like unexpected pop-up windows, user accidentally clicking away, etc.

so i think you should investigate on finding where the setting you want to change is stored. then, if possible, change it directly in the registry or in the settings file.

i'm not using Windows Live Mail so i can't be more specific. you can start here:

and of course, google is your friend.
