Outlook Express on IE 7 ?

ACER Aspire L.Top Vista. IE:7.
My son has recently bought a laptop, and wants to use Outlook Express.
His machine seems to contain only Outlook.
On the E-Mail tag the words Outlook Express does pop up, but when he clicks it, it loads Outlook.
I'm not au fait with Vista but I think I read that O.E was phased out for IE8, but would like to know if there is any way that we can get O.E on his IE7 set-up ?
thanks

Hope you all had a great Christmas & all the best for the New Year.

Normally OE replaced by Live Mail.

As you're running Vista, the updates should have installed IE8 for you, this will give you OE's replacement (Windows Mail) which is very similar in looks and operation to OE6. When you have updated to IE8, go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs tab > Internet Programs section > Set Programs button > Set your Default Programs option and choose Windows Mail as your default, rather than Outlook.
