    Is it possible to download and install Windows Live Mail on XP Home 32 bit SP3? If so, where can I find a download that works.

    --- or, just use Outlook Express. It came with XP. Pretty much the same email client.

    When the hard drive fails, you're going to regret using a mail client.

    IMO, web mail or bust.

    So you are saying it is preferable to use a webmail?

    I have used GMAIL for years. I have had failed Hard Drives, smashed faulty Hard Drives with a hammer, installed new OS's multiple times.

    Every time after, I log into GMAIL all my emails and contacts are just as I left them.

    If you POP your webmail into Thunderbird or another email client, you'll always have a back up on the web, should your hard drive ever fail.

    I think he is talking about something like Thunderbird, where emails are downloaded to your computer and often deleted from web mail server. I use T Bird and like it, but I have set up Gmail not to delete messages until I actually do it manually.

    I also have a mail account from my ISP. I use as a "personal account" and the Gmail address for the public and web sites that require an email address. Both are POP accounts.

    I have several free guest Fastmail web accounts which are soon going to end on June 30 and one must pay to have Fastmail. Also have Verizon web mail and verizon Outlook Express 6 email that I read in the paper is soon going to end so they can switch you to AOL mail which they purchased. So I opened a Gmail free account and expect I am going to have to make changes in my email addresses and service and am looking for options. I have not gotten a Verizon termination notice yet and do not know if I wil, but want to still plan some other options for free email. The WIndows 7 PC has Windows Live Mail 64bit and I tried downloads for XP but they say "Not a valid W32 application" when I click the install file.
    I have 2 Gmail accounts but have not yet begun using them except to test.

    BGBG, if I were you, I'd dump Windows Live mail and Verizon. The last thing you would want is AOL. Gmail is a much better option, and free. If you don't do anything else, switch to using Gmail, either as web mail with the Gmail Notifier or something like Thunderbird that will download messages to your computer.

    Do you have your Gmail dump into Thunderbird, Dougie?

    Let's leave that at KH, Seth.
    It has nothing to do with CHF.

    I downloaded Thunderbird and it appears to charge a yearly fee for email addresses, while I was seeking a free email.

    Mozilla Thunderbird is free, Bill.
    Where did you download it from?

    https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/ Downloaded from here. It was free but then when installing it wanted to assign an email address and presented a list of charges. Maybe I misunderstood something. Like things when free to download but hen a charge to use. No problem with G mail.
    Also, many of search sites had U-Block prevent them from opening.

    Looks like it. I guess I should use my G mail account here, right?

    By the way is there a reason you no longer have Thunderbird other than personal preference? I am going to try my Gmail address since it is the only sure one now.
    But I am going to keep the Gmail for it sounds good. Thanks for the help.
