Windows 7: EMail on Windows 7?

29 Oct 2009   #1

EMail on Windows 7?

I purchased and just installed windows 7 on my laptop and everything went smoothly. However, I normally use Outlook for Business email and Microsoft Mail for personal mail. It appears that there is no Outlook Express OR Microsoft Mail in Windows 7? Is that true? I've searched Microsoft support and they don't say anything about it except to use windows live.
Any advice what to do?

If you have Win 7 Professional or above, you can use Outlook Express in the XP mode (virtual pc). Otherwise, you get to use whatever you want... Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows Mail copied from a Vista computer, etc.

Yeah, because of the European Union, MS decided not to include a mail client in Windows 7. However, you can download the optional Windows Live Essentials update from Windows Update that includes Mail. You can also download Thunderbird or another email program or, if you have a copy of Office, you can install it and use Outlook.

If you download and install Windows Live from windows update or from Microsoft website, you'll get windows mail. This windows mail will let you set up multiple accounts.

JessePenn; when I first installed 7 I had outlook express withdrawal. Live mail took a bit to get used to but Now I sync 3-4 different accounts and it seems to works well.
