Thank you Mark and Poppa Bear!

There are a lot of posts to this thread. I am ready to migrate to Win7 from Vista (I have a Win7 CD) and want to be sure I do everything necessary to have Win Mail work when I am finished. Which post (or posts) of this thread do I need to follow to get the job done properly?
Thanks,
Dick

Once you have your new installation of Windows 7 up and running, use the modified version at the very beginning of this tutorial taking care to follow the steps exactly as shown. You don't need any Vista files to enable Windows Mail application. Everything is there, including the required Vista msoe.dll file in either 32 or 64bit.
  • If you are loading a 64bit version of Windows 7, be sure to read Footnote 3 at the bottom of the tutorial.
  • Do not attempt to open WinMail.exe until you have completely finished the steps of the tutorial.
  • Steps 5 & 6 show how to import Windows Calendar and make it run in WinMail.exe interface; and the simple way to import all your Vista emails, contacts, and personal folders.

Nice one Mark, clear and concise help!
I'm a new comer to Windows 7, directly from Windows XP Pro, I gave Vista a wide birth as i'd heard nothing good about it.
But i'm impressed with Win7 so far and always appreciate the time taken by people like yourself to get a forum together.
Thanks again m8

It might be a good idea if an online survey is posted somewhere on this forum to find out how many members are unhappy with the windows live mail.
