If I change to Windows 7, would I still be able to use an email client to download my messages using pop3 access? Specifically, would I still be able to use my favourite Outlook Express? Thanks for taking the time to answer and keep up the good work. I enjoy this newsletter very much.

You cannot download or run Outlook Express on Windows 7. You can use another e-mail client or Windows Mail which is similar to Outlook Express. You can set up a POP 3 in Windows 7 with Windows Mail.

Steve, don’t just think about upgrading from Windows XP. Time is running out. Microsoft will end support for XP in April of 2014. That means no new security updates and open season on XP users for hackers with malicious intent.
