    What email programme???

    I have an ipad2 and a WindowsXP PC where I have outlook express set up as my primary email account. I set this up on the ipad2 so I use the mail programme to access my mail from the ipad. however I am going to buy a laptop with Windows 7 operating system and it does not include Outlook Express. My query is do I buy Outlook Express or do I just use the windows live email included with Windows 7? I access all my mail on the ipad but I don't like that you cannot tidy up mail by putting it into folders so I have to keep logging in to the PC to tidy my mail from there. Am I just used to Outlook Express? Any advice would be helpful, just to be clear I want to access my mail from the ipad but I want to be able to create folders and move my mail to them.
    Thank you in anticipation.

    You cannot buy Outlook Express. But Windows Live Mail works fine.

    It is possible to 'tidy up your mail' on the iPad if you (a) switch from the mail protocol POP to IMAP and (b) create the folders you want to see on the iPad Mail program using webmail and creating those folders first on your email server. With IMAP your iPad will display all the folders that are on the email server.

    Hi Tim

    This sounds too technical for me!! Step by step would be helpful. I am not too bad with technology but email accounts have always lost me. I have to depend on my grandson for that!

    Kind regards from a bleak Scottish town!

    Isn't Windows Live Mail just the web access for Hotmail? I don't use the service, so I"m not 100% certain, but if it is you can set it up directly as an account on the iPad.

    iOS 5 offeres an easy setup at Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars; Add Account; Windows Live Hotmail. I think iOS 4 had this (or similar option ). I'm not sure if there is any difference, but when they updated the Yahoo account serup it came with more syncing options.

    Or you can set your hotmail account up as an Exchange account:
