You do not need to have a live account to use Windows Live Mail, and Outlook Express is part of Windows XP if not installed on the machine, then go to the control panel, add and remove programs, and click on the left you will see a button to add windows components...should be in there.

Here is the normal path if you care to search for Outlook Express:

"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe"

Windows Mail is only for Vista, and it is an interim solution, ultimately to be replaced by Windows Live Mail.  See this article:
