new Acer notebook with win 7
no sign of OE, which I prefer to other email clients. I use Firefox for browsing, but IE is still installed and won't allow installation of previous IE version with OE attached.
how to do pls ?

Simple answer is YOU CAN'T it didn't exist in Vista so you will have to use the latest mail client compatable with Win, 7 which is live mail...

Hi Dasmad,
I was in exactly the same position as you when I changed to Win 7, having used OE since day one and become familiar with it.
I reluctantly downloaded Windows Live Mail and Have to say have never looked back. It works on the same principle as OE but obviously with some cosmetic changes to justify Microsoft introducing it.
I say go for it.

And if you've got back up copies of your OE account settings, address book and e-mails you can export them straight into Live Mail
