Default Transfer of email from Windows Live

I am hoping for some feedback or comments. I currently have Office Home and Student 2010.
I am currently using Windows Live for my emails but not happy with it.
Before I transfer my emails to Office Outlook I would like to know how long in terms of years of Microsoft "support" there is left for this version.
And if I don't like it can I change it from Outlook to another email program?


I thank you in advance for any replies.

I don't think anyone here will be able to comment on MSFT's policy on support as this forum is not run by Microsoft.

You might want to ask here on a forum which is run by MSFT but you still may not get a definitive answer.

Microsoft have officially announced that Mainstream Support for Office 2010 will end in October 2015, this means that there will be no new features etc added. After that date it will go into Extended Support phase, which means that MS will only provide security updates.

No date is yet set for when Extended Support will finish, however Office 2003 and 2007 received extended support at least until their tenth birthday, so it would be fair to assume support will be there until 2020.

You will be able to export all your information from Outlook if you don't like it, there is a comprehensive export function that will get your data saved in a number of different formats, which you should then be able to import in to your chosen alternative

Thanks John for the reply.
I assume MSFT is Microsoft. I actually did get re-directed to a site which showed me some dates.

Hi Neil
Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I had been given a link that showed me dates but thanks so much for explaining what it meant.
