Unfortunatly Microsoft have removed Windows Mail from Windows 7 because of all the legal anti-trust stuff against them. You can read more about this here...

Your options with Win7 are using Live Mail ( or loading on Office and using OUTLOOK or use a download site like filehippo and get a copy of Thunderbird or another freebie email program.

If you want to use the original Windows Mail program (as with Vista), and you still have a PC with Vista installed on it, you can copy the program from one PC to another.

Here is a link that explains how to do

Hope this helps ?

Welcome to THF, Alice! I assume you mean that you installed the Windows Live Essentials package from Microsoft, which includes Windows Live Mail. Here's a step-by-step walkthrough on how to set up an email account in Windows Live Mail.

I think Windows Live Mail is a little better than the Windows Mail client anyhow. Outlook Express couldn't handle the inbox file being larger than 1GB.
