If you get a Gmail account, you can set up both Outlook Express (on XP) and Windows Mail (on Vista)
to access your account. Just set Gmail to leave messages in the "web site inbox" when you configure
the POP mail transfer. Now you will get all of your messages on both computers and you can also use
the Gmail web site to view, delete, or reply to mail.

Also with Gmail, you will never have to worry about change your email address again. You can access
it from any ISP connection.
