Any recommendations for an email program for Windows 7? (Haven't seen a topic on this - any links?).

Looking through Google, Windows Live Mail has been suggested. I understand also that it would be possible
to use Outlook Express, if you have Win 7 Professional and can therefore download the Windows Virtual PC
and run the program in Windows XP Mode.

Not all of my accounts can be accessed through webmail, without paying further subscription fees,
so I am looking for a good alternative.

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I personally recommend Thunderbird. It is fast, secure, and has tons of features.
Windows Live Mail is nice too but with Microsoft's security history... I stay away from it.

Thanks for reply Romeo.

This link paints a poor picture:

However, as always, what works for you is important and it is a matter of trial and error
to find what suits you and your system. It may work for me, who knows.

Still on XP, just sorting out what I will need.

Pete.

I use Tb mostly for GMail accounts, and am very satisfied with how it works.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I have been using T/B for about 2 weeks and it works great. Windows 7 home premium. As with all emails you must be care full what you open and have good security.

Animal moved my topic here as being more appropriate, but for anyone with the same interest,
there are more suggestions in the Win 7 forum:
