Nothing happens to the emails. You login to the site as normal using a different browser.

"Best browser to go for" depends on whether she wishes to customise the look, add toolbars, etc. Chrome is fast and good but doesn't permit toolbars.

If she is using Webmail i.e. Google or Yahoo etc. they will be available on any browser.

I use Google Chrome, it is fast and efficient, and easy to use specially with the Quick Dial extension.

No you can leave IE there, may be best to make the new Browser the DEFAULT one, otherwise clicking on links may open up IE instead of your new Browser.

IE can still be useful on certain websites, e.g. form filling ones will sometimes only work on IE.

I agree - it's bar far the best browser in my opinion. Make sure that you check the settings when you have downloaded and installed Chrome,you want to ensure that it doesn't remember passwords. It's a bad idea to allow a browser to fill in forms for you - always do it manually.
