    Windows Mail - How do I Get Started

    I am using Windows Live Mail on Windows 7 with a POP email account. I have a new desktop running Windows 10.

    How do I get started? The posts I see when I do a search are mostly dated in 2015.
    Are there any more-current user guides that would help?
    I will also want to transfer my emails and contacts to the new computer.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi, having transferred mail from one client to another with the death of successive MS offerings from Outlook Express to Windows Mail (not Live Mail) I settled on Thunderbird- be free of MS's vagaries and random acts. Their lack of consistency and their spreading email related data all over the place did them no favours in my view.

    So first pick your free client. Make sure there are clear transfer routes for
    - emails
    - contacts/address lists
    - mail rules
    - etc

    Freeware such as
    MailStore Home – Free Email Archiving and Backup for Home Users
    and commercial programs can be used to assist with data transfer between clients.

    For Windows Live Mail to Thunderbird there are plenty of references e.g.
