Thanks so much! My problem is now fixed...

This information can be found here:
E-mail - Windows 7 features - Microsoft Windows

As a matter of fact save that link as it is the windows 7 features page, and can guide you through many of the features.

Just check the left side menu for what you would like to know more about.
This got me on the right track. I tried the Import Mail Trouble shooter... it didn't find any problems, but it did suggest other troubleshooting options. This finally lead me to the following web address: Import your e-mail, contacts, and calendar into Windows Live Mail
By following these instructions, I was able to get all our mail. This was such a relief. My husband said he had done this before and it hadn't worked... so maybe it was the re-install of Window 7 that changed something.

Anyway, thanks to all of you who kindly tried to help with my problem. I am very grateful... and very happy that there was a good resolution. Thanks all!

Printer is now working... a microsoft person helped me on the phone and their remote easy assist (you share control of your computer). I guess my husband could have figured that one out... we had to put the info about our printers in again... guess it wasn't saved after the upgrade. Thanks again!
