    Will Windows 10 have an email client?

    The subject title said it all.

    Like Windows 8 (.1), a Metro/Modern/Universal Mail app is included. It still doesn't support POP though. Windows Live Mail will work with Windows 10 and supports POP.

    The Windows Live Mail and Gmail accounts will work in the Mail app. The Bellsouth account will only work if it supports IMAP. Installing the Windows Live Mail client will support all three accounts. You don't import the last two accounts, you create additional accounts in the Email clients.

    I like the free SeaMonkey browser, includes an E-Mail Client. I just installed it on one of my Win10TP computers and have downloaded it for my MacBook OS X and Linux Mint computers.

    If you used and liked XP, then you probably used Outlook Express 6. Eh?
    I used O.E. all the way back to day one (whenever that was...I forget) because it just worked and it was so easy to set up and operate.

    When Windows Vista came out, I found that O.E. had been spruced up a bit and renamed to Windows Mail, but it basically was 99% like O.E. and was just as easy to use.

    Then Windows 7 came along and "AW SH**!" they disabled Windows Mail so it wouldn't work, but they didn't remove it from the OS.
    What's up with that? (they leave something in the OS that can't work!)

    So the fix there was to just copy all the files from the "Windows Mail" folder in Vista and transplant them to the Windows Mail folder in Win-7, and VOILA, we have Windows Mail working great on Windows 7.

    Enter Windows 8 (& 8.1) and once again MS messed around with Windows Mail, so the fix I just mentioned would not work.
    An additional .dll file was required. Again, I tweaked Windows Mail and got it working.

    Lo and behold, in Windows 10-TP, Windows Mail won't work, but using the tweak that I used in Win-8.1, it DOES work.
    So I'm running Windows 10-TP, 32 bit, 9926, and I have Windows Mail working just great.

    So, "all things are possible, for him who believes", or is a good hacker!

    Cheers Mate!

    Mind sharing the name of that file?

    Right now no one outside Microsoft knows for sure the features and specifications for the email application for Win10. The email client MAY depend on the screen size.

    Hi, again, Doc.
    In another thread, you made similar reference to "hacking" Windows Mail. I asked in a reply there, and am asking again, would you please share the specific steps you took to make Windows Mail work in both Win8 and then Win10?

    There are many of us who want to retain an OE-like mail client. With your help we, too, can be good hackers!

    Thanks, again. ~RonR

    ~RonR, I won't compare Outlook Express with another E-Mail Client but I've just started using the SeaMonkey browser from Mozilla and it includes an E-Mail Client, looks like it will be better than Windows Live Mail for my simpler needs.
