Windows 7: Windows Live mail

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.

"However in order to download Windows Live Essentials (The source of several free programs from Microsoft, including Mail) you needed to use a LiveID "
I am prepared to be corrected, but you can use the standalone Live Mail, jusy like any other desktop mail program - No need for a live ID.
