Hi Elf,
I think I will go get that ZIP file you mentioned just to see how much work is 
involved in getting Windows Mail working on Windows 7.  As I said in a previous 
message, it would be nice to know how well it works with JFW 12.  I know that 
sometimes there are JFW settings for a program even though it isn't mentioned 
in the list of supported programs.  Lotus Symphony is an example.

I'm glad my XP system with Outlook Express is still plugging along while I try 
to make up my mind about an email program for Windows 7.

  sorry your incorrect, o.e. cannot be used on windows 7, but windows mail 
is... there, its disabled. 

  if you want to know how to fix this there is a zipped file on my grab bag 
site (URL under my name) that can be used to re-enable it on most systems.

    I don't know about OE, but there is no windows mail on win7. Its name is 
windows life mail. Now, I know that outlook 2007 and 2010 does work with 
windows 7. Maybe you should upgrade.

    Dear all,

    I am using windows XP SP3 and outlook 2003. I have configured my Gmail 
account exactly as stated in Gmail help. I receive the incoming mails, but I 
can not send anything, without any kind of error message! Any suggestions?
    (I have imported the settings from OE, and then modified it to the ones in 
gmail help.)

    I really prefer to use OE, but I am switching to windows 7 soon. So I am 
looking for a well accessible counterpart for OE. Can OE be installed on 
windows 7, instead of windows mail?

    Any suggestions/comments is greatly appreciated.
