moderated Windows 10 & e-mail programs


Jerry hathaway
 

I am moving to a new computer which has Windows 10 on it. I am still using my old computer at this time and it has Windows 7, Outlook Express, and Jaws 2021 on it. I need to find a E-mail program that works well with Windows 10, Jaws, and is easy to use. I will want to import my address book from Outlook Express into the new program. Any suggestions will be appriciated.

Hi Jerry,

 

From what you have now, I think you’re best bet would be to go with Outlook which will let you import from Outlook Express. I am using it with JAWS 2021 and have been doing this with every JAWS version since Outlook Express and that was years ago.

What version of Outlook Express are you currently running?  It's possible you can run the same one on Windows 10 iff it's the one I'm thinking of.
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Mozilla Thunderbird works well with JAWS and Windows 10 and is free and easy to use.

I will say this, and say it only once:  It is a gross disservice to any user transitioning to a brand new platform to encourage them to use software that is out of support.  It's just bad practice to use out of support software, period.  And how much you like it is not relevant.

Thunderbird is a wonderful email client, fully accessible and fully in support, that runs fine under Windows 10.  The Windows 10 Mail App is also accessible and more than adequate if you don't have need for what I'll call a "feature rich" email client.

I don't know of a single email program that doesn't have an import/export feature related to contacts.  But in this day and age, if you're transitioning from a client that maintained its contacts strictly locally and within itself, you should establish an account that has IMAP access and to which email, contacts, and calendar can be synchronized across devices and even different email clients.
