Windows 7: Which mail to use.

Windows 7
Which mail to use.

I am setting up a new Sony Series E laptop with Windows 7. For years I have used MSN as my home page and mail service. I have also used Outlook for my contact list and calendar. As I set up the new machine, I am wondering if I should convert to Outlook mail. As best I can tell it is similar but it uses the Contact list for the address book rather than a seperate address book in MSN mail. Can you advise the differences between MSN Mail, Outlook Mail and it seems whenever I travel away from my desk top, I must use Hotmail.

Thanks; Keith

Since it seems that you are habituated to MS for your email, it likely wont do any good, but I would recommend using some other better client and email service than what you have. I would recommend The Bat, but it is not free, but there are plenty of others that are.
