What are and where are the Microsoft Windows 7 addons to replace stuff removed in Windows 7?

Partially answering my own question and expanding:
I have heard people say that Microsoft has some downloads available
that replace programs that were around in XP and Vista but not
included in Windows 7.
Live Mail (from I don't know where at Microsoft is a suggested
replacement for Outlook Express and some other Microsoft mail
thing. However, Live stuff has too much baggage, so I am still
looking for an Outlook Express email replacement. [Forte Agent
is somewhat of a replacement, but one would need an export from OE
files and import to Agent utility to get started])
Virtual machine support for XP from I don't know where at Microsoft
is added functionality that is needed.

I'm still looking for the exact information for the virtual
machine support and Live Mail since I couldn't find the
correct links, only many that weren't the correct links - I'm probably
leaving out or adding a keyword that Google or the search on Microsoft
needs.

There may be some other programs that are available from Microsoft to
replace lost functionality that it would be nice to hear about.

Does anyone know the URL for these downloads (which are probably
somewhere on on microsoft.com?

Thank you.

Mozilla Thunderbird 3.0 was released about a week ago, and is a decent
program. I had 2.0, and it wasn't much better than the other available
stuff, but 3.0 is good. Give it a try. www.mozilla.com
