Windows 7
« Reply #11 on: Oct 23, 2009, 17:23 »
How are you handling your emails?  I'm greatly disappointed that they have removed Windows Mail.  I've tried Windows Live Mail and think it is rubbish.  I'm struggling with Thunderbird, but finding it difficult to set up with extra folders and filters to direct mail to them.

Anyone know of other simple programs that will do what Windows Mail did?

Cant help you with that one because I have used yahoo mail for the last ten years or so, and it has always been good enough.

So you use it three times?   :D :D

Yes, I'm getting away with it now. Did have some trouble setting up the 12 message filters I that use.

My only current gripe is that I can't get my 2004 edition of Quicken money to work. It only worked on one of my computers on Vista and not the other. It has all of my financial records back to 1994 on it, and current versions on sale in OZ and USA will not transfer UK files. It is no longer sold in the UK.

Windows 7 has an XP mode doesn't it? Try that if it all worked in XP. Don't know how to invoke it though, maybe right click the program icon and look for an option?

It's a well documented problem with Quicken 2004 and no-one has found a solution.

So far I am very impressed with the new OS.

Went to order my "free" windows 7 upgrade yesterday. I have previously checked on the website that it would be £19.90 to post (very reasonable, ahem), only to go through the motions, to find that they want to charge me a "banking fee" of 8 quid so I can use my card, which happens to be the only payment option.

Makes me sick.

How much does it cost to post such a small package?  Another typical rip off.

Its a packard bell. My understanding from the 90's is they are a norway based company (?). The distrbution centre is not in the uk and this make it easier to come up with silly costs for shipping and payment options.

I looked yesterday, I can buy home premium for £45 quid. Is a joke
