I need a new email program as Windows 7 does not come with Outlook Express and I do not have MS Office installed. Tried Incredimail but this has a nasty bug as it trys to open a nasty web site. I need to use my own email addresses other wise will have to change letterheads etc. I am in Australia and do not want AOL so your suggestions please?

You could always use MS Outlook.
I think it's part of MS Office 2007???

You can try Windows Live Mail. It is the replacement for Windows Mail and Outlook Express.

DJ2680, hello. If you are a former Outlook (Express) user, then you should find Windows Live Mail familiar. As Justin says, it is the replacement for OE from XP and Windows Mail from Vista. Windows 7 does not come with an e-mail client, but Windows Live Mail is free.

If you are coming from a Linux environment, are a Firefox user, or a multi-platform person (Linux, Mac) you will probably prefer Thunderbird from the Mozilla Foundation. Or try them both and see which one you like better.

I use Mozilla Thunderbird, very easy to set up in Win7. You can customise it with add-ons and themes to resemble Outlook.
