In exploring why .eml does not open, it was suggested to use Outlook Express to open the site. I used O.E. for years and liked it but when I bought a new computer with Windows 7, it was not an included program nor could I install it. Is O.E. now known as Hotmail or what? Any help would be appreciated.

Windows 7 does not support OE.

Simply put, OE will not work on your Win 7 system.

OE is NOT hotmail.

You'll need to install an email client compatible with Win 7.

Where is Outlook Express?

Outlook Express has been replaced by Windows Mail, an improved e‑mail program with enhancements such as junk e‑mail filtering and protection against phishing messages.

Windows Mail has been upgraded to Windows Live Mail, which contains even more enhancements, such as the ability to automatically configure itself to work with many popular e‑mail services. To download Windows Live Mail, go to the Windows Live Mail website.
