Hi Dan. I would suggest Microsoft Outlook is a good alternative. If you 
happen to have the office suite, it is part of that. If not, there is always 
Windows mail which I assume, for Vista users, is much like Outlook express.

I would like to know more about Angelina the gorilla who needs adopting and 
lives only on such sustenance as she can get from her toenails.
