OK just spent all day loading Win 7 on new machine. I used Win Easy Tranfer on old puter and loaded into new puter. But where the heck is Outlook on Win 7? I sure the heck hope I don't loose all my emails and setup?

Windows 7 does not come with Outlook. Check out Windows Live Mail.

I had a similar issue, but with a Vista to W7 overwrite. There's no warning with RC1 that W7 would not be installing a mail program, nor any explanation why, nor any prompts about finding and installing your own email client. I do hope they are more communicative with the full release.

I d/loaded Windows Live Mail, and upon installation it automatically found and imported my contacts and emails, which actually made me smile. But then of course I couldn't find the send/receive button, finally stumbling onto the Sync button. Which I have to double click to send/receive. Sheesh.
