    I currently use Win XP with outlook express as my email. I am planning to purchase a Win 7 system that I understand utilizes windows mail. My question is it difficult to migrate email and address files from outlook exp to windows mail?

    No it's not difficult at all and one way is to use Windows Easy Transfer. Look at the following explicit instructions on how to migrate your files (including email) from XP to Win 7. http://tinyurl.com/r3og2r

    You will need a USB jump drive or an external HD or choose the option of using an Easy Transfer cable.

    Just to clarify. You'll use Mail - Windows Live which you'll have to download and install unless the OEM installs it.
