Hey Guys!
Ok, for all you people who love the WIndows Mail in Vista (like me), here is a way to get it in windows 7.

You will need:
  • A computer with Windows 7
  • A computer with Windows Vista
  • 1 File available for download at the bottom of this post.
  • A way to transfer files between the two computers.
The Proceedure:

  1. Download "Ownership.zip".
  2. Extract "Ownership.zip"
  3. Install "InstallTakeOwnership.reg" on the W7 machine.
  4. Go to %YourDrive%\Program Files\.
  5. Right-click on the folder "Windows Mail".
  6. Click on "Take ownership".
  7. Remove, or move the folder "Windows Mail".
  8. In vista, copy the folder: %YourDrive%\Program Files\Windows Mail.
  9. Paste "Windows Mail" from vista to windows 7 %YourDrive%\Program files\
  10. Make a shortcut in the start menu to %YourDrive%\Program Files\Windows Mail\WinMail.exe
  11. Tada!
There, you got Windows Mail from VIsta to 7!
