Hi  all

This is a  re-post, of  my trials of email programmes with win7 and how I 
made the
final choice.

In December 2013, having considered my options for replacing my old trusty
HP desktop PC  running WinXP and JFW11   , I  had a new PC built  to my
specifications and Windows7 installed as the operating system plus
Office2013
and Jaws15.

My first challenge was to decide  what POP3 email client to use with my 5
very active email accounts, and at first it seemed a  good idea to use
Outlook, but after struggling with it for a  week, I  gave up on the Idea ,
it seemed far too confusing with all it's bells and whistles.

As a  possible alternative, I  spent a  great deal of time trying the
Various versions of OE for Windows7   on the technical list I  subscribe to.
However,  in spite of the great help I  received from many lister's, I  Just
could not get OE to work properly   , in fact this inadvertently caused
problems installing Microsoft updates, I  had to let the Microsoft
disability help       desk sort out the problem for me, it took them over an
hour to fix it.

I  thought why  not carry on with WLM, I  had heard that it was a bit
difficult  using
the ribbons, however it was quite easy once you take  the trouble to read
up on the way they are arranged, in practice I  can see some of the
advantages, and in reality, the ribbons are quite logical to use.

I must say the excellent Jaws guide  for WLM by David Bailes helped a  great
deal, it can be found
at:http://vip.chowo.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/jaws/Windows-Live-Mail-2011-Guide.html

WLM seems to suit my particular needs, and it's working outg great for me.
So I  say goodbye my old friend  Outlook Express, you were great in   your
day, but time marches on.
