Hi all.
I have the title on this computer. I use Outlook Express. I was wondering about changing to Outlook from the title.

Can I move "Everything" fom OE to O? Addressess, folders, E-mails including via Google? Can you see any problems? PJ

No I am sure you can import them I even think I did when I made the change a few years ago

Easiest way is just simply don't open it up :)

Not if you don't open it. If you want to be sure just go into tools/accounts and delete your mail account from it.

Why do you want to use an old version of Outlook when you have an updated version of OE which works perfectly well.

Might not keep Outlook yet, just a trial. PJ

You have to make it the default email client, if you want to use OL

All your emails, contacts, sent and etc will now be in a *.pst file in outlook 2003 which I suggest you backup on a regular basis.

Outlook has so many more useful features I use the calendar and the task lists all the time to remind me to do stuff, although I am now using the sticky notes in Win 7 as well

Another thing to watch is the size of the *.pst file as well. Not sure offhand but Outlook 2000 has a 2 gig limit. 2003 is better and 2007 is better still.

Archive older items.
