I suppose it's goodbye to Outlook Express when I install W7, what happens to my address and network settings are they all staying the same?

I would think there shouldn't be a problem (says he waiting for order to be delivered). Outlook Express emails are made up of a number of files with typical suffixes eg .dbx, .ibx and, as in XP, one would assume you can Import these files/folders from the backups you create before the switch to 7.

Are you doing a upgrade?

when installing Windows 7 it will I hope install windows live mail and if its a upgrade it will auto save your addresses and contacts also

Back them up though just in case

I will be doing clean installation, moving from XP to W7, but already have full backup of all files on external hard drive including address book, that is most important, have hundreds in that folder.

I did notice that Windows 7 would not include Outlook.

I use Incredimail which gives a lot of different letters and animations but there are a lot of others around!

I am happy using Windows live mail but want to be sure that I can download my address book onto it, but I suppose if it is on external drive I can move it across, but wanted to know if anyone had actually done it.
