Does anyone know about windows live mail 2011, and if so, do you like it? I am thinking about this one, and or, Thunderbird for an e-mail client. Does anyone have any idea which one I should get. I don't know anything about either one of them. The computer it will be installed on is a windows 7 starter. I am doing this for another person. Thanks.

I would suggest going with Thunderbird.  It's straight forward and easy to use.

I love WLM 2012.

I like it better than Outlook.

Jcgriff2, thanks for your reply. I will give WLM consideration. I am setting this e-mail up for a person with very little knowledge of computers so I really want a simple e-mail client for her. I have had MSN Premium for many years, and I like it very well. I would like to see the interface of WLM but I cannot find it online. Is it complicated to use?
