Note I really DO NOT recommend using outlook express. It has a large number of security issues that MS will not be closing since that have moved on to Windows mail (which is not much better).
Windows Mail is not the current MS mail client, either. It was only available with Windows Vista; though some who upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 managed to hack Windows Mail in to Windows 7, those who upgraded directly from XP to 7, and those buying Windows 7 for the first time are unable to get it.
As for OExp security issues, the most egregious ones were patched in the upgrade from IE 5.5 to IE 6.0 (OExp is a component of IE through v6.0, but not after). Windows Mail is what would have been called, " Outlook Express 7", if it had been included with IE 7. But MS had severed the mail client from the browser when they rolled out Windows Vista/Internet Explorer 7.
The current MS mail client, which is not tied to either browser, or OS, is, "Windows Live Mail". Unlike OExp (which is unsupported by MS, even for security issues) and WM (which is a part of Windows Vista and will only be supported as long as Vista is), Windows Live Mail is in full support bt MS.--
