Windows 7: What mail program to use instead of Live Mail?

What mail program to use instead of Live Mail?

I've been using Live Mail for over 2 years now and I quite liked the old version.
But now I got a new computer, had to re-install Live Mail, and the new version is horrible. I hate those tiny tiny icons in the left corner of the screen, and also the overal look and feel of the new UI.

If there is a way to get the old version I'd gladly take that. But I'm afraid it's not available anymore.

What other programs are there that I could use? I need to be able to import all my old mails.

There are many free email clients other than Live Mail that you can be used on windows 7.

To name few: Mozilla Thunderbird, Opera Mail, Postbox Express

Postbox is IMO one of the best. Simple set up of email accounts, way better than Windows live. So good I paid the 9 bucks for it, and I never do that.
