What is a good e-mail to replace Windows Live 2012.

I don't want to pay for Microsoft's PAY THROUGH THE NOSE Office Suite just to get OUTLOOK. I want to be able to use my MSN, LIVE, etc e-mail addresses and be able to store my e-mails on my computer, just like Windows Live Mail allowed me to do. I have 3 desktops all running Windows 7 Pro 64.

Thunderbird has similar feature set to Outlook but is 100% cheaper

As it's from the same people that produce Firefox It's fully customisable and supported both officially and unofficially

I've started using Fossamail, it's a fork of Thunderbird. Uses a lot less memory than Thunderbird and has some of the bloat stripped out. All the TB add-ons still work. Plus it's optimised for 64-bit and has more options for IMAP than WLM.

I've tried a few. eMclient is good but the free version is limited to 2 accounts.

You can get around that limitation by use of an organiser email account ( I have one set up using Gmail, but any suitable account can be used), all my other accounts are checked and collected by the gmail account so I get a single point to read mail from several different accounts (this can either integrate accounts or separate thenm as you wish, as the send options are set to reply as the original account there is no issue with confusing other mail senders

Also with eM Client, I found it best to Exit it [if it is sitting in the icon notification tray/background working] before any Windows Restart or Shutdown. Otherwise, it often generates a please wait, checking/rebuilding database upon next Windows session.

I find that EM Client v6 works best for me. What are the differences between v6 & v7?

Not much difference about the over-all operations; version 7 moved some things around along the top menu bar -- I have to click on Menu or Refresh to access some of the stuff.

OT, but I'm interested to know what advantages eM has over Gmail. I use Gmail as you do - as an aggregator for several emails. Are you saying you prefer eM as the primary interface?

If you ever used 'Outlook Express' (years ago), and you found it useful, helpful and easy to use, you'll love the new "O.E. Classic". It's free for one or two email addresses.

Then for the Geek, Nerd, Hacker or just plain Windows enthusiast, there's always a way to Re-Activate "Windows Mail" that first came out in Vista, to replace Outlook Express. I use it myself, and I call it Outlook Express on steroids.

I have five email accounts and I have them all set up in Windows Mail, so all my email comes into my computer every three minutes all day long, as long as I have my PC turned on.
I also like that it's 100% compatible with the 'Windows Address Book'.

Good Luck!
