I just bought a Toshiba Laptop and just discover that outlook express is not included anymore in Windows 7. It was a lot easier when the program was included. Why not provide us with a choice of e-mail provider which will make for an easier for us new customers. I just dicovered that Outlook Express is replaced by Windows Live Mail. Thanks for the help. I will be installing it and hope it lives up to the comments you have received. Thanks again.
