I need some help, I just bought a new computer and it has windows 7 in it. from what I have been reading, outlook can not be download in it. So what should I do, I am running a small business, I have multi e-mail address. Some are from charter (.net),from go daddy (.com) and gmail. From what I read I might have to download another program, but then i read, no you wont. I do know somewhat about computers, the basic. Can some please help me! I am lost on what to do.

Outlook Express is not available on Windows 7. Forget about it.

Microsoft's replacement for it is "Windows Live Mail". I tried it and couldn't stand it. It's nowhere near as simple and understandable as Outlook Express, which I used and liked for 10 years.

I'd try Thunderbird, a free download from Mozilla.org. It's pretty simple and can be configured to look a lot like Outlook Express. Here is what it looks like on my PC.

You can get it here:

Mozilla Thunderbird

Personally I find it easier to use Windows Live Essentials for the eMail client...

The 'cleaner' 2009 version can still be found here:-

Subsequent builds were a little over-bloated...

I realise that top-ten lists are very subjective, but have a look here for some popular mail applications.

Must admit I agree, although I only use the eMail client myself...

I believe it can import Outlook Express archives, as it still uses the .eml extension on messages - and I know it's a lot simpler and faster to install than the hacks to make Vista's Mail client work in Seven.

How safe is Windows Mail in Seven anyway? Since it's a hack surely there are no security patches for it, as they'd only be palmed down to Vista users

With these eamils will I beable to use different accounts on them? I guess the other question is what would be the best one,easies to use multi email account and easiest to transfer stuff from outlook.

I also have used outlook for many many years.

So I will not have to sign up for the Windows live mail? just download Mozilla thunderbird? Will that walk me thru importing my stuff fromoutlook?
