I am upgrading to Windows7. Outlook 6 does not come with Windows7. If I download Outlook Express 6, can I use it with Windows 7?

I looked in to this for some one else.
There is no standalone OE 6. It was part of IE 6 (It is integrated into IE 6). It stayed with IE 7 and then IE 8 as you upgraded the Internet explorers.
What is available now is Windows live mail.

Outlook Express 6 only appears on a computer when you install IE6 with it. XP pre-installs IE6 and Outlook Express with it. On older Win98, ME and 2000 machines, you get OE6 when you upgrade to IE6 on those platforms.

Outlook Express is not upgraded or indeed featured with regards to IE7 or IE8. However since IE7 is only available for XP and later, it doesn't matter anyway.
Windows Live Mail is tooted as the replacement for Outlook Express across XP, Vista and Windows 7. Under XP it replaces Outlook Express, under Vista it's a replacement for Windows Mail and it's a free add-on under 7 as that OS features no email client by default.

Windows Live Mail uses pretty much the same interface, design and functionality as Outlook Express. Not that I'm particularly keen on it myself, but there you go.
