Windows 7: Windows 7 Compatible Email servers

Windows 7 Compatible Email servers

Hi All I just purchased a new Computer 64 bit with windows version 7. like most people I have problems finding a Email server that I like and actually works with it. I do not like Windows live at all and as you would know can no longer get just Windows Mail. I have been looking around for free or paid email programs that are completley Compatible and have been somewhat disappointed, although many forums suggest that the latest thunderbird is compatible or Eudora or paid Poco programs I have tired them all, no problems about them installing OK however they all give the same problem ie, when on a Web site and you wish to use the Web contact email, it does not reconize it and tells you that the Email program is not the default server or configures as the default, when you go into configure default it will not let you do it!.

Try as I have even with patches and registry changes recommended by Poco Help still no go!!! I have now left the Poco program on as I do like its setup and for that small inconvenience it is worth the $45 AUST, I have tried all the other recommened programs for 64 bit machines and they all!! do the same thing ie, do not recogize the Email program as the default server!

Poco has said that a new version will be issued fixing the problem but no date is forthcoming. Is there anyone out there who has had this problem or can give any suggestions to this problem. I am a bit disappointed that many software programs that operated with XP do have compatibility issues with windows 7, seems to me a way of them getting you to purchase updated programs or patches to fix, some of these are very expensive!!!!

Here is a list. If I were you, I would install each after making a system resore point. If not liked you can get rid of the entire program, using System Restore, without remaining remnants or registry changes.

Wow, I do not deserve rep. I posted the invisible list and now I missed your post. I apologize and will get the list.
