      E-mail client under Windows 7?

      Got a message when upgrading to Windows 7 that there was no e-mail client with it.

      I used to use Windows Mail and had it all setup with my Sky accounts etc, now what do I do?

      Anyone got any suggestions etc.

      You can go and get windows live mail, that is the replacement to Windows mail which is a download off the MS site.

      I tried it and uninstalled it.

      The only problem I have is the annoying bug that outlook 2002 has when it constantly asks you for your email password, broken in Vista and still broken in win 7.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      Yes, I have found that and will give it a go, at least it pulled in all my settings etc without a problem

      Actually, after buying the Win7 Home Premium upgrade today from PC World for 58 It really was a doddle took a couple of hours but no problems, much easier than any other upgrade I have had to do, it was even less troublesome than the Vista SP1 update.

      Windows Mail is OK - I'm still using Outlook 2007 until 2010 is good (current technical preview is crap)...
