In Windows 7 you use Windows Live Mail, or a third party email client like the free Incredimail, Thunderbird or similar.

"How do I connect to my outlook express account to retrieve my addresses etc?"
You don't connect to Outlook Express, you connect to your ISP privided pop server.
Outlook Express is just the email client you were using to send and receive your email.
"I got a new computer with windows 7 on it"
If you still have the old working computer the mail and contacts can be retrieved. Otherwise you are out of luck.
This is shutting the door after the horse has bolted but, you should have saved the data from the old computer first.
If you still have it and need help retrieving the data post back.

M$ replaced Outlook Express with Windows Live Mail a while back. Your email client options at this point are:

1.) Download & install Windows Live Mail.

2.) Install Outlook via M$ Office Suite.

3.) Switch to Thunderbird from Mozilla.

Tauooooo,

Check your FF properties for the location of download files, I have mine set to the desktop.

And quit hijacking other people's thread. Start yours if you have a problem you need help with.

I have been pondering the win7 and outlook express thing for over a month now but have come to a conclusion.
I downloaded the VMWare Player virtual soft ware and now I have windows 7 with the win xp and outlook express as a virtual program running on win 7. I have imported all my emails and addresses to this virtual program and it works very well.
I will use this for a while to see if there is any draw downs before claiming victory.
