I've been using Windows Live Mail on Win7 for a few days with a Live Mail account along with a Gmail account.  I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I have.  The emails I receive are sorted by "conversation", which is based on the subject line of the email, which is handy for sorting and reading the PCNet-online forum emails.  The Live Mail account I am using has calendar entries that show up in a window pain on the right hand side.  (I believe Microsoft actually refers to a Live Mail account a "Hot Mail" account in the setup.)  It seems to be lighter on resources than Outlook or Thunderbird was in WinXP.  And, of course I like having a new toy.

Actually...I like it. I was using it on my Win7 laptop. Worked very nice...especially for sending emails with photos/cartoons in them.

I've also installed it on the laptop I'm using now with XP. Works..but not nearly as well as with Win7. (Not sure how much is the OS...and how much because XP is on an old single core laptop.)  I had to laugh after I got it setup. After getting Live Mail installed....next thing I knew it was auto-magically importing my emails from Yahoo.  I don't ever remember doing that, but I must have  several years ago when I was playing around with Outlook Express and Eudora.
Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.

Being one that doesn't like change it took me awhile to come to terms with it but It's slowly growing on me.

Karl - Know what you mean.  I added a gmail account to it and it proceeded to suck down all my email.  It was several thousand.  I stopped it when it got to about 4 thousand, deleted all the old stuff through a web access, then opened it back up.  It automagically deleted all my old emails and adjusted up to the way I had left things on the gmail website.

Bob - I used to want to try every new cool toy out there, especially if it was free.  Now that I have the luxury, I mostly leave my main system alone and play with others that I won't mind breaking.
