Windows 7: Outlook 2010 vs. Windows Live Mail (Office suite)

Outlook 2010 vs. Windows Live Mail (Office suite)

I currently use Windows Live Mail.
I was looking at "Office Home and Student 2010" and "Office Home and Business 2010" (1 user license).
Business has Outlook, where as Student doesn't.
Is Outlook "better" in any way than WLM?

Outlook is a paid program so it will have more functionality than WLM, but they will both have their ups and downs. Either you use free WML or pay for Outlook.

Quote:
Windows Live Mail is free software which lacks the full functionality of Outlook. If you want to have something for free, use Live Mail. If you want something professional that will integrate your calendar, contacts, and email, use Outlook. Additionally, Outlook can connect to Microsoft Exchange Server, which should be considered if you are in a business environment.

As far as migration benefits, Outlook is far superior than Windows Live Mail or Outlook Express. Outlook stores all of your emails and data in a Microsoft Personal File Folder (PST File) which can be simply copied from your old computer to new computer if you ever buy a new system. Windows Live Mail is much more complicated and difficult to migrate.

I would research the functions of both and see which one you prefer.
