There is no OE for Windows 7. If you don't like live mail, and I don't, use Thunderbird -- it is very much like OE but better. If you ever backed up your OE or have the contacts saved you can import them into Thunderbird.

My wife was use to OE, then got use to Vista Win mail (replacement for OE). When she Upgraded to Win 7. She hates change!!. I ended u porting Vista win mail over to Win 7. Not simple, but doable. Problem is you need access to a vista Computer and Need to copy the win mail directory to a thumbdrive, then transplant it to win 7.
NOT as simple, Just google it. It involves changing files/folder permissions.
