Windows Mail or Outlook
In Vista, I would assume that Windows Mail is similar to Outlook Express ??
If so, I would assume that Outlook is probably still better than Windows Mail ?

Windows Mail is the newest version of OE, renamed, with just a few differences. Whether Outlook is better is up for debate. It just depends on what you want and need.

Why? There's nothing wrong with windows live Mail, i'm just trying to get you to elaborate, as everyone's opinion is important and quite often helpful to other members

Now, in saying that, at home with Vista, I haven't really played around with Windows Liive Mail. It seems well integrated into Vista and logon screens etc... but not sure about features such as newsnet, RSS or connecting to Exchange.
What are other people's thoughts?

Thanks for the opinions everyone. Guess I will just try Windows Mail for a while, since I used OE before. Maybe after a while I will switch to Outlook, because that is also what I use at work. You are probably asking yourself--why did this guy use Outlook at work, and Outlook Express at home ? I am asking myself that too !!!! Another question--I thought I read somewhere that Outlook might be a bit more safer / secure than OE or now Windows Mail ? If that is true, maybe I should just use Outlook. I am behind a linksys router, and that windows Firewall.
