    Windows 7

    Hi, Jimbo - would the same work for Windows Mail (Vista version) being used in Windows 7? It works perfectly in Windows 7 - not a single hitch since 2012.

    Can you do the virtual machine idea for Windows 7 with the Vista version of Windows Mail? How much space might this setup take (excluding your existing emails which would be transferred over later).

OE was fast small and efficient -- great pity it ended after XP. Use Free VMware player or VBOX to create your XP VM.

    I agree with previous poster though I HATE webmail type clients --usually slow, messy and adware driven.

    If you can find a cheap (discounted) version of office 2007 or 2010 then outlook is very good, There are also some reasonable LINUX email clients but that's another issue entirely.

    Note to people who don't like IMAP - there's no problem copying email from your IMAP inbox to the local outlook pst files - simply copy (or move) to the relevant folder. Outlook 2013 is a DOG in that regard as the outlook files are hard to find. However in both OUTLOOK 2010 and 2016) and presumably in office 365 the folders are restored again into your documents folder named outlook.pst.

    I do like IMAP as it's easier to use email from a myriad of devices -- when I want to save emails I just move them to a local folder on a PC.

    cheers

    Hi there

    W7 works absolutely fine as a Vm --probably a better idea tha XP as it's still getting security updates.

    Just install the minimum you need to run your email application -- really simple to do.

    Cheers

    I don't know too much about virtual machines or what the minimum requirement would be so am not sure it would be simple for me, but it is good to know it is an option if I can't just install Windows Mail (Vista version) directly into Windows 10 for some reason. I know sometimes one person can do something while the other one just can't for some quirky reason having to do with their individual computer so I like to know options and work-arounds.

    The one I was talking about was the first one. I understand that some people were able to install and use the Windows Mail from Vista in Windows 7, 8 and then Windows 10.
    I'm talking about the Windows 10 store /start menu email client IU app not web mail other than Windows Live ,Outlook Express ,Outlook or [any other web mail ] you can link ( add ) to the Windows 10 e mail client .

    Win10

    Hi:

    Perhaps you can help me out. Am trying to install multiple copies of Eudora 7.1.0.9 on a Win 10 machine. Multiple installs on an XPSP3 machine (which blew the motherboard) work fine

    On Win 10 the first copy installed and works just fine fine, but the 2nd and 3rd (installed to different directories and different names) won't run and the first install opens instead with a warning about registry entries and default mail programs. I realize that Eudora is "old tech" but I like it and am use to it.

    Any suggestions as to how to get it to do multiple installs?

    Thank you for your help.
