I just got a new laptop and it has windows 7 in it. I don't have outlook express however in this program. Can I get outlook express to download it to this version of Microsoft??? :) I looked for a download from microsoft but got nowhere with it. Seems like they are all repair downloads if you have the outlook express already and not the program itself. Help please, Kirny

Outlook express is no more - and has been replaced with Windows Live Mail

If you opted for Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate - you can however run outlook express from XP Mode

Go into Control Panel -> Windows Update.
On a check for Updates, check the "Windows Live Essentials". If it doesn't appear you need to upgrade to a free Microsoft Update. You can do this from the bottom of the Windows Update screen. Or failing that, go here: http://home.live.com/

Windows Live Essentials will download a program called Windows Live Mail. It is the replacement for Outlook Express, Outlook Express is continued in favour of Windows Live Mail.
