With Win 7 in mind I opened a Hotmail account and imported my Windows Mail ISP account into it. ie now have two addreses. Have found that Hotmail is much to frilly and complicated when all I want is a basic email send and receive. Had a look at gmail which looks much more like Windows mail- is gmail OK ? Could I import my old ISP e address into it from Hotmail? Only reason for original change was due to impending Win 7 installation Thanks for any help.
I know it does not ship with win 7 but I am using it sucsessfully . you can copy the email folder complete from a fresh install of vista . over to win 7 . It works a charm I am using it with the full rtm version of win7 . look here: click here
Thanks for that will attempt it when I get 7. In the meantime will have to try to get my ISP win mail back to windows mail. Another thing about Hotmail it seems you have to keep resigning in for instance after doing a file clean up.
