    Default Outlook Express

    An elderly friend has just acquired a Compaq Laptop running Vista which also came loaded with 2007 Microsoft Office which keeps demanding a trial product key. She has no use for this suit of programmes and finds it confusing.

    She has been using Outlook Express on her old machine and is accustomed to this programme. She really just needs a simple, straightforward email client.

    I tried her on Eudora a couple of years ago, but after a trial declared that she would prefer to go back to and use Outlook Express.

    Can anyone tell me where I can find and download a Vista compatible copy of Outlook Express.

    Many thanks...

    Vista uses Windows Mail I think, not Outlook Express

    You may as well uninstall Office, if she doesnt use it

    SG, thanks, you are quite right of course. I just checked and find that I have Windows Mail in my version of Vista. I have always used Eudora so perhaps I can be forgiven for not being aware of that programme.

    Many thanks...
