Outlook express is no more.
I guess I'm assuming you do not want Outlook?
IMHO, Mozilla Thunderbird is an excellent client. No ad-ware. It can even connect to an Exchange Server, if you desired. I use it on Linux, but works equally well on Windows 7.

After giving up on MS I got onto Fox Mail. Easy to configure & import settings. Works for me. Gave thunderbird a go & others but fox mail was the easiest to setup for me.

The replacement for Outlook Express is Windows Live Mail and is part of
Windows Live Essentials

When you install it will give you a choice of a number of free programs from MS. I use Live Mail, Photo Gallery and Movie Maker.

No, you can d/l it for 7. Never copy a program, b/c of registry issues.
