    Windows Mail prog

    Trying to install and setup new HP w/Vista for friend. Initially have had
    good luck, but now trying to get email established for him, found out Vista
    only comes with a program called Windows Mail. Where in the world to you
    locate it?

    PS glad I'm helping him before I upgrade.

    Hi,

    Windows Mail is basically an updated Outlook Express. Simply click start and
    type "windows mail" to locate it. You can then pin it to the start menu or
    add an icon to the quicklaunch bar to make future access easier.

    Very similar to Outlook Express, but does not support http mail access like
    hotmail. Therefore you will need to download Windows Live Mail desktop
    application.
