    Windows Live Mail about to go Kaput

    Hello all,
    I recently received an email from Microsoft stating that Windows Live Mail would cease to operate correctly in Windows 7. I have no wish to upgrade (?) to Windows 10 at this stage and was wondering if I can simply operate my copy of Outlook which came with my Microsoft Office Suite 2010 in place of Windows Live Mail. If that is unlikely to work, can anyone suggest a generic downloadable mail client that I can transfer to. I guess I'll lose all my folders from Windows Live Mail? Any assistance at all would be greatly appreciated. If this question has been asked elsewhere, please redirect me to that discussion.

    Does anyone know if Thunderbird will work with Hotmail??? I couldn't see an answer to the problem in the previous discussions, Maybe I"m just missing the point.

    Ross, I've used TB with Hotmail (now Outlook) for a long time and it works fine.
