Chapter 12. Windows Mail

Email is a fast, cheap, convenient communication medium; these days, it's almost embarrassing to admit that you don't have an email address. To spare you that humiliation, Windows Vista includes Windows Mail 7, a renamed, revamped version of Outlook Express. It lets you receive and send email and read newsgroups (Internet bulletin boards).

If you do have an email address, or several, Mail can help you manage your email accounts, messages, and contacts better than ever.

To use Mail, you need several technical pieces of information: an email address, an email server address, and an Internet address for sending email. Your Internet service provider or your network administrator is supposed to provide all of these ingredients.
