There is no default email program with Windows 7. Outlook Express has been replaced with a new program called Windows Mail that you can get from here:

http://explore.live.com/windows-live-mail

However, I would recommend getting Thunderbird instead:

http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/

Once you install either one, everything should work from that point forward.

Windows 7 does not come with an email program out-of-the-box.

If you've installed a professional level of Microsoft Office that includes Outlook (that's Outlook not Outlook Express), then you can use that comprehensive email/calendaring program.

Otherwise, download Windows Live Mail:

There are quite a number of non-Microsoft solutions for email: Pegasus, Eudora etc. etc.:

'Hope this helps,
