Hi Daniel,

I'm unsure how well your support tools will work with quoted emails. I'm 
going to place my answer below your text according to the convention on 
this list.

First of all: Hello, and welcome. If you're a beginner to Python (or to 
programming in general) you might find the tutor list is a better place 
to start:

   https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/tutor

But feel free to carry on posting here if you prefer.

If you want advice you'll probably need to ask a more or less focused 
question. The sort of thing you outline as an audio computer game sounds 
interesting and quite ambitious. I'm not clear if you've done any 
programming at all until now? If not, you'll want to start small and 
work up from there.

I'm not clear what's going on with your Windows Live Mail issue. The 
only (and obvious) thing I can suggest initially is to ask if someone 
closer to you can understand what's happening and advise. It's difficult 
to guess what's happened without getting closer to the problem.

Anyway, do post back here or to the Tutor list and ask if you any 
specific questions.

TJG
