Best Email Program for Windows 7 64 bit

Am just now uncrating my new DAW from Jim Roseberry and getting things up and running before starting the mammoth task of moving all my audio/sequencing/instruments/etc... over.  I see that Windows 7 doesn't come with an email program...so...any reccomendations??  Also, does anyone have a suggestion for how best to transfer the quite literally 100s of Gigs of stuff over other than just re-installing?  I'm going from XP Pro 32 bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

    My ol,

    Try Mozilla's Thunderbird. Pretty good email program.

    Two things about your migration.

    1) If there is a way to do it, it's probably riddled with fault
    2) Now is the time get the cleanest install and then image that bad bay. So fresh install is my recommendation.

    Come back in six weeks and tell us how it went?

    does anyone have a suggestion for how best to transfer the quite literally 100s of Gigs of stuff over other than just re-installing?

    If the old computer is going to be retired, you might consider simply installing the old hard drive in your new computer. Copying data becomes very fast and easy, and if there's something you forgot to pick up it's right there. Once you're sure you don't need anything on that old drive anymore, either stick it back into the old box and give it to the grandkids or wipe it clean and leave it in place for additional storage.

    As for the email problem, I am actually dealing with this right now while setting up a new netbook for my wife. Windows 7 does come with an email client, but it's butt-ugly. Give Thunderbird a try. Last time I looked at it was quite a while ago, and though I wasn't impressed at the time it was still in beta back then. I'm sure it's improved a lot since then.


    All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.

    Hi,

    NONE!

    I guess I might as well ask you the next obvious question ... why would you want to download crap into your computer? ... and that is exactly what ALL mail programs do!

    Stop the insanity. Only do Webmail!

    Good call Bit. I assume our ol pal was referring mostly to installed programs/sound libraries. But then again, most libraries could just be copied (as set config within software).

    Yeah ...
     
    I have a couple of those hard drive enclosures (only 25 bux) that plug in to the USB port. So what I did was copy as much as needed (no need to copy programs themselves), and then formatted the hard drive so it would be blank, and it is my backup!
     
    It's a lot easier than putting it inside the machine, when you don't have to open it at all!

    What's all bullsheen about? Outlook works flawlessly with Win 7 64 bit. I don't know what more you could want.
