email setup for Act 2010 on a computer running Windows 7

Have used Act for the past 10 years and love it.  Upgraded every few years and have had wonderful success.  I have just upgraded to a new computer running Windows 7.  I have also upgraded and installed Act 2010 on this new computer.  My issue is that in the past I have used Outlook Express to manage my emails, but now Windows Live I guess has replaced Outlook Express or Outlook.  I have a Windows Live account, but am unsure how to get Act to recognize Windows Live when I set up the email integrations with Act.  Any suggestions on how to make this work?  Thanks.

ACT! can't... Microsoft removed the MAPI interface from Windows 7 so that apps can't talk to these programs.

 

If you don't have the full Outlook, you'll need to use Internet Mail from ACT!

Thank you for your help.  Sorry to take so long to reply.  I now have Outlook 2007 and am getting the emails to go through and come in.  I really appreciate your help.
