    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.

    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.
