i use windows live mail for my hotmail account, its just like outlook express but sexier. other than that i dont even bother with ie8 i just use firefox, safer, faster and looks so much nicer. never had a problem with web page support either.

oh and i just transferred 122gb (7,778 items) and took 32 minutes at a average rate of 70mb/s between drives. dont seem to be any probs with transfer rates dropping.
