On this I am logged in by username firstname.lastname@example.org which is my email address and also a password.
When I press login using these details I am taken to http://email10.orange.co.uk/webmail/en_GB/welcome.html where I can also find my emails but only those received in the last two months.
If I have understood correctly having corrected my understanding then would I be correct to say orange email is the e-mail service and orange.co.uk the client?
When extermination day comes on 31st May would I be correct in thinking that the above service and client will no longer exist and the last two months emails accessed via this route will be wiped from the web as those earlier than that appear to be now?

whilst if I use orange.co.uk as client they are not downloaded and will not exist on my computer
but will be available to me by going online for as long as the client wishes to keep the?

Going back a step. Accessing WLM is just like it was in the beginning. All emails can be accessed and new ones created but only sent when on line. Thus, the freeserve history will be accessible on my computer after elimination day.
I had been advised that only two freely available equivalents to WLM exist, Outlook and Thunderbird
Starting with Thunderbird. I have set up a new e-mail (Mail box) using Gmail (service) and Thunderbird (client) and this appears to work OK and have been able to add Thunderbird link to my task bar in the same way as WLM.
WLM and Thunderbird can be accessed and worked with in the same way off line.
Now for Outlook which has me banging more bricks out of the wall with my head. I am told that Outlook is an e-mail client – and Outlook.com – an e-mail service. I have set up a .... @outlook.com mail box (e-mail). However, the only way I can access it is via the internet and clicking on https://outlook.live.com/owa/?authRedirect=true which is in my favourites folder but cannot find it anywhere to pin to the taskbar so as to go straight in as with WLM and Thunderbird. I suspect 'live' is the issue but can't understand why no Outlook program is in All Programs when Thunderbird and WLM are.
