Does Windows Mail survive from Vista to live on in Windows 7? I do hope not!

Nope.

You need to use another mail client - no great loss.

I see Outlook Express offered as a download but says for XP and earlier. I liked OE. Would it run under Windows 7 do you believe?

You'll be installing MS Office anyway, you'll get office outlook anyway. But I think having Windows 7 mail would be good despite all.

Windows LIve, including the new mail client and some other prograsms, is the (free) replacement for Windows Mail

Actually, as posted by jimbo45 some time ago..............

As long as you have a Vista machine, you can copy the contents of the C:\program Files\Windows Mail directory from the Vista machine and replace the files in the C:\Program Files\Windows Mail directory in Windows 7.

You'll need a program called ]Unlocker1.87 to delete the files on the Windows 7 machine.

Otherwise I'd recommend the open source thunderbird 2.0 e-mail client

I think its sad windows 7 lacks a built in mail system, though it will encourage people to move to web mail more, this will make moving to new systems after windows 7 less of a nightmare.
