Hi,

Windows 7 does not come with a default email client.

However, you can install an email program-Windows Live Mail (If you don’t have any other email client on your computer) —a free program that is part of Windows Live Essentials. Windows Live Mail works with most email accounts.

To download Windows Live mail click here.

Refer to Set up Windows Live mail for your E-mail account
