New Computer & OS - Need Help!

tosserApril 11, 2009

Hi folks. My elderly computer went south bigtime 2 weeks ago (he's in the shop and the comp guy is attempting to retrieve whatever data he can). And yes, I had a backup/rescue disk, but it's corrupted and unuseable.

Anyway, because of long work hours I just this morning got my new fancy-dancy machine hooked up and online (came here first, of course, since I was having WS withdrawal symptoms) and I'm close to panicking because nothing looks the same!

Mainly I'm in a tizzy because there doesn't seem to be any handy Outlook Express icon anywhere. While I dread having to wade through 2 weeks of email, it's got to be done. Does anyone with Vista have any tips? Or should I just go ahead and call my ISP's holier-than-thou customer service reps?

These people will want to know which computer and OS you have acquired.

Thanks, Al. Once I calmed down and began poking around I found the "new-and-improved" Windows Mail program. Looks to be pretty much the same as OE, just spiffied up a bit.
