Experts,
Does anyone know where to locate Windows Mail for Server 2008.  I have a particular use for it and can't seem to locate it on the server.  Looked under add roles and add features but no luck.  Does it have to be downloaded?  I noticed there are security updates out there from Microsoft for Windows Mail on Server 2008 so it should be available somewhere.  Thanks for your help in advance!

Unfortunately server 2008 does not come with a build in email client. The only part of Windows Mail in server 2008 is the contacts.
You can install a third party email client if you wish. If you have a copy of Microsoft Office you can install Outlook. If not you can try out Thunderbird ( http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird/ ) or Eudora ( http://www.eudora.com/ )
I hope this helped. Good luck.

I was actually able to find Windows Mail.  It was included in the Desktop Experience feature you install separately.  Everything is good now.  Thanks for the response!
