Win8 is the future, oh wait, that was win 3.11 ...
Not much interested in the future, just interested in what works ;)
I love Windows Mail and I like it even better than Outlook Express for the simple reason that it makes backing up your emails a breeze.
Everything is stored as eml files in subfolders.
And you can even make a template in Explorer to display emailfolders with all kinds of emailproperties, so you can browse your backup folders without the need for a seperate app and you can open each eml on it's own.
And ok, I must admit Windows Live Mail supports the same (but is a hassle when you want to include pictures and the layout is terrible if you use multiple mailaccounts), but Thunderbird doesn't. There is another one that does save everything as eml too, but I forgot the name. I can look it up if needed.
So like nosparks I've taken Windows Mail with me on Win7 computers where possible ;)
