Hello slick8

Windows mail has been replaced with Windows Live Mail, as part of the Windows Live package. It is now an optional download and doesn't come pre-installed in Windows 7.

You can download it here:

It's probably a good idea to check out a few of them for yourself, because sometimes it's more a matter of preferences than anything else. I want a lot of customization options in my email, so I prefer Yahoo Mail (or Yahoo Mail Plus) because they seem to allow more customization than most of the other major emails.
