The new Windows Live Mail Client (essentially a rebadged Outlook Express with a new skin and some additional features) is a nice mail client considering it’s free. It has POP3, IMAP, Live.com and Hotmail.com support and is ready-to-run. You can get it at get.live.com. If Thunderbird isn’t your thing or if you’d rather use a client for Hotmail or Live.com mail, Windows Live Mail client is definitely worth a look.
