You don't HAVE to use any version of Outlook Express immediately -- go to the Talk Talk mail website: webmail.talktalk.net and send and receive your e-mail from there.
Doubtless, Win 7 includes a version of Outlook (or similar) and you will be able to set that up so that it works the same way as your present Outlook setup.
Personally I wouldn't choose to go that way unless you have a lot of e-mail because offline mail incolves mail being downloaded to your computer before you can see it and decide to reject dodgy stuff.
Windows 7 doesn't have a pre-installed email client.
But its very easy to download Windows Live Mail, part of the Windows Live Essentials package.
Live Essentials also gives you Live Messenger, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Writer, Toolbar, Family Safety. Everything is optional, you can install just Live Mail of the rest of what you might want.
