What Mail Client with Win7?


[link to this post]
 
Was told at a party today that no eMail client is provided with Win7 and you had to buy Access. What a swizz! Is this true?

Can't you use Win Mail or Win Live Mail clients?

Install Windows Live Mail

There are plenty of free alternative as well. Personally I like Thunderbird

true but you can download Windows Live Mail which is free http://windows.microsoft.com/en-CA/windows7/products... or then again Thunderbird is probably better - also free http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/
Just to add Microsoft Access is a database program not an email client
Edit - a bit slow but at least we all agree

Windows 7 has an email client included: See folder \Program Files\Windows Mail\ Within this folder there is a HIDDEN file "WinMail.exe". This is the well-known "Windows Mail" from Vista. But this program doesn't work. To get it work you need to replace the file "msoe.dll" in this folder with a version of Vista (you need the same version from Vista: 32-bit or 64-bit). To replace "msoe.dll" in Windows 7 you need to take ownership of "msoe.dll".

I did wonder!

I might have remembered the name wrong, but I'm sure he said one of M$s Office programs. I expected him to say Outlook but I'm sure it wasn't that one. Nor was it Excel or PowerPoint! So it must have been Access grin. Of course he could have meant Office.

Outlook is the email client in office, ok it is a bit more than that, but it can do emails.
Livemail is just a updated version of outlook express, I always hated outlook express.

Use thunderbird or Eudora, which is now based on thunderbird. i myself use incredimail.

No thanks! I'm perfectly happy with OE on XP and WM on Vista.

You could always try EMClient It is a very good simile of Outlook and can import Outlook folders. The free version can have up to 2 accounts and there is a paid for version with unlimited accounts. It works very quickly and is stable,
