A subfolder of your email account, or a subfolder of your local file system? If the latter, you could zip it up and attach the one zip file.

It is a sub folder of the email account.

I don't think there's a way to email a folder in WLM or even in Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail.com), or similar. However, you could open up the folder where WLM stores your messages, and then zip up and attach the relevant folder to your message. The location under Win 7 should be at "C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\[account name]\[target folder]."

If you right click the subfolder and then Send To, you should be offered "Mail Recipient" in the Context Menu.  Click that and WLM should open a New Message form with the subfolder already attached.  You would then fill out the rest of the WLM Message form and Send.
