Get Off Outlook Express

I have seen several machines in the last few weeks that are still running Outlook Express with their Windows XP computer and they all are having issues.

Time has well and truly passed Outlook Express by.

It really is time to switch for features and security enhancements as Outllok Express is a nightmare.

So what are the free options now?

The paid option is obviously Outlook , a part of Microsoft Office

Here is a link to help you with the transition from Outlook Express and getting your emails and contacts out of Outlook Express.

    Hi Richard.

    Can we keep the same email address , or at least have our ‘bigpond’ address emails forwarded on if we make the change as you have suggested ?
