    Go to Start | All Programs | Mail. That is the supplied mail client.

    Are you using the WLM client in Win10 now?

    I've only used Outlook for a couple of decades. So, I can't address the migration needs for your situation.

    The included mail client in Windows 10 seems to be pretty rudimentary, I would say a few steps back from Windows Live Mail. You will have to export everything from Live and then, if it can be done, import it into the 10 mail client. Personally I plan on staying with Live Mail initially until I see how the new mail client gets improved.

    Like Joe, I am also on Outllook. The companies that I work for expect to be able to send meeting invites from their Outlook to my mail / calendar. And of course I would have to transfer mail / contacts, appointments etc. to win 10. Has anyone tried either of these?

    Also I use MessageExport to move mail to files, and Kies to sync to Outlook to android (though Kies does a very poor job of this for me.) Anyone seen if these will work under 10?

    I, also, use Outlook (Office 365). Everything is consistent in it whether I'm w/ it in 8.1 or Windows 10. Of course, one can use Outlook.com. I did try the Store Mail APP, a little, just to give it a 'taste'. As soon as the Accounts were configured it immediately produced all the same folders, et al as in Outlook. Don't misunderstand, not saying functionality is identical but, the Mail APP didn't seen too bad... but, as I said, I didn't work w/ it for a long time, just was part of striving to investigate lots of stuff & things just for familiarity's sake & or just out of interest..

    Oh & all the calendars sync nicely... Store Calendar, Outlook Calendar, Calendar in Windows Phone, et al.

    Didn't really have to transfer anything, per se. Was just all 'there' once the Accounts were configured.
