from Mozilla,

I see this is the new version 3, so I will be upgrading to that soon.

But I just wonder why you cannot get on with Windows Live Mail. I admit I have never tried it myself, but from what I understand it does everything that Outlook Express did/does.

Lots Of Free Email Sites Out There!

I have a new desktop with Windows 7 installed. I continue to use my old Hotmail account through Windows Live Mail and I also have a Gmail (Google) account. Gmail has tons of free storage and has upgraded their security features. You can google "free email accounts". There are plenty of them. I have used "" in the past with no problems. It's always good to have separate accounts for your personal stuff and all other things like newsletters, etc.
