Texting from a pc

Hi folks,
Yup,it's me again....your low-tech friend.
My son who is young and knowlegable about such subjects, tells me I can get a G-Mail account and I could text from my pc. He also said, I could keep all my addresses in outlook express and not change any of that. Did I understand him correctly? If so, how difficult is it to do the G-Mail addition?
I am using X-P Home, SP-3 and Outlook Express.

You can send text messages from Outlook Express\HotMail. I use it to text my daughter's, using their ATT #'s.
