Will Outlook Express install on Win 7

A friend has a computer running XP and is using Outlook Express. He bought a new computer running Win7. Will Outlook Express run on the Win7?

Windows Live Mail works great. I've been using it since Windows 7. I've got thee accounts on it. It does what OE did and more. You (or he) can download it here.

Thanks for the posts. I'm going to his house this morning and see if I can migrate his OE to Windows Live Mail.
