Windows 7: I need a good email software now!

I need a good email software now!

I hate windows 7 email, I hate RoadRunner Web Mail.
Anything I forward to my husband (he has Seven and I have Vista) disappears and can't be added to the Contacts BECAUSE WE CAN'T FIND THE THE LABEL NAMED "CONTACTS" OR SOMEOTHER FOOLISH NAME.

About all we do is e-mail and downloading. Maybe a letter to the editor or two, and why didn't we keep XP?

I hope someone can recommend an easy e-mail software to buy and maybe we can get on with out lives like before SEVEN.

Would recomend either buying Office to get Outlook - or even use something like Mozilla Thunderbird for a free solution!

You could use a web-based product, like Gmail (my favorite) or Windows Live Mail.

Yup. Easy. Opera has a fine eMail client in their browser, kill two birds with one stone and ditch iE8 at the same time...

Buying office just for email is rather overkill isnt it?

Id recommend WIndows live mail. Its easy to set up and import your contacts. Whats more, it can backup your contacts online if you have a live id.

Download.

Outlook 2010 is a very good software.

Mozilla Thunderbird is a very good email client. Add in the lightning app to get calendar function. Very reminiscent of Outlook but with the virtue of being free.

Office home and student does not contain Outlook, It can be purchased stand-alone, and in Office basic or higher office packages.
