I wish I knew what to advise you on this topic, but I also find myself in the same position. I recently purchased this new laptop, with windows 7 installed on it. I also decided to upgrade my Microsoft Office from the 2000 version, to the Student/Office 2010. Several hours after roaming through the Office program went by, and then I noticed that Outlook Express is not included with that program, but can be purchased for an additional $149.00

Windows Live setup didn't go well either. I tried to run the wizard, and set up an email account, but I never could get the sign-on to acknowledge the password for the windows live, or the email account/s Gmail, or others that it stated would import all contacts from the old account (Outlook Express).
I'm not using Windows Live becuse of this, but to be more honest, i'm not really sure what the importance of the program is, other than using it for Video email of sort. I just let it stay closed, and go on without Windows Live right now.

Hope everything works out for you, and maybe we can both benefit from any responses on this topic.

Have a great day,

As far as i know, Window Live Mail is only used with Hotmail, or the newer @live.com domain. I stopped using WLM and been using the Hotmail connector for Outlook. Having my emails sent to outlook is just like using WLM, but with the whole boatload of Office tools to use with it. I still like using a web based email istead of my ISP provided email, because my emails are always "stored" on Hotmails servers, and can be accessed anywhere, where my ISP it is sent to my computer once, and the copy is only stored locally on that computer (with Outlook)
