Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I use Windows XP and Outlook Express for my e-mail. Somehow I loaded plain Outlook which will not allow me to use my scanner to scan & e-mail pages, and also when I try to e-mail some articles off of the internet, the e-mail calls up Outlook rather than Outlook Express. I want to delete Outlook & substitute Outlook Express for these functioons descxribed above. I am a "computer illiterate!" Thanks, Grant

Start Outlook Express, click on the "tools" heading at the top of the screen, click on "options" in the drop down pane, select the "general" tab, at the bottom of the pane select "make default" this will make the default mail handler Outlook Express, no need to uninstall the other one.

I just got Windows 7 and was told Outlook Express wouldn't work with that OS. So, I loaded in Eudora. Not really fond of it but then was told I could go back to Outlook Express IF I changed the...


I would suggest using Windows Live Mail, as this is what Microsoft intended when they retired Outlook Express.

You can download from: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-mail?os=other

It is a more feature rich email program than Outlook Express and should provide all needed functionality.

How to instal outlook express?


Outlook express only comes with windows xp and earlyer windows versions.
However in windows vista microsoft did replace outlook express with windows mail and
in windows 7 they left it completely out of the package.
In windows 7 you'll have to install windows mail from the windows live essentials package, wich is free to download.
Outlook express can't be installed on windows vista and 7, use windows mail instead.


Download Windows Live Essentials here: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials?os=other

How to download outlook express to send mails


You can't really download Outlook Express as it is part of Windows XP.
If it is not there, you can add it though the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel. Select the Windows Components icon in the left-hand pane.

In Vista Outlook Express is replaced by Windows Mail, and in Windows 7 there is no email program, but you can download Windows Live Mail.

My canon lide 100 scanner will e mail scanned


The scan to e-mail uses your default mail product. As of June 2008, Outlook Express can not check a Hotmail account. If you have XP, Vista or Win7, you can download and install Windows Live Mail and use that instead. Since Hotmail is a Microsoft product, Live Mail should set up the account without a problem (both the incoming server and the out-going server); all you'll need to add is your full email address (name@hotmail.com) and password. Make your Hotmail account the default and Live Mail the default e-mail program and you should be good to go for sending e-mail via Hotmail.

If you want to continue with Outlook Express, there is no solution.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(Live Mail will ask if you want it to be the default program when you first launch it after installing (in my experience all mail programs do this). If you relaunch Outlook Express, it will ask the same question and you will need to reset the default program for mail. This can be done either as each program asks or through the Control Panel, Programs, Default Programs)

Some e-mails go out and Mountain Cable sends some back saying for us to "plain text". Idon't know what they mean.


When you send your mail, it is send in two different formats according to the setting in the options. They are either HTML, Plain text or Rich text. I assume that you may be using outlook express or MS outook.
Yours seems to be sending mail in HTML. Though this is a better way, some companies/persons do not accept mail in HTML format. There a several reasons, most common being security. In such cases you may have to send that particular mail in Plain text format.
For Outlook:
1. click tools
2. click options
3. click mail options tab
You will see the mail sending format as HTML
There will be an arrow button, which when clicked gives you a few options, like HTML, Rich Text and Plain text.
4.Click on plain text.
5. click OK

For outlook express.
1. Click Tools
2. click Options
3. Click send tab
4. Change the Mail sending radio button to Plain text.
Newer version of some Third party mail programs gives you an option of send in HTML and Pain Text. If you have that option, select it. Makes things a whole lot easier.

Can one only use Outlook Express for email attachment with HP Scan Jet G3110


If Outlook Express is your "preferred Email", when you email a scanned image, it is sent by Outlook Express. The sender's name displayed is the user listed in the Outlook Express (whose User name is used to get into the Outlook Exp).
If anyone else want to send it in their name:
This is what you have to do:
Save the scanned image somewhere in the computer.
Goto your Yahoo mail, or Hotmail or Google mail (create a free account if you don't have your own email account) and send the scan as an attachment. Hope this will work for you.

Transfering mail setup from Windows xp to a windos vista machine with EasySuite


I'm not 100% sure about vista because I hate it but I can help you copy all of your outlook express data to a CD\DVD disk & your address book. Your network settings for express account is a phone call to your ISP.
If vista's explorer is set up like XP you should be able to copy your data into outlook express.
Open all these folders on you XP system.
User name\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Copy the Outlook Express folder to your CD.
User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book. Copy Address Book folder.
Making sure you have everything.
Open, User name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Compair the two Outlook Express folder files. CD will not allow copy of same named folder.
If Vista's lay out is the same as XP than copy Outlook Express folder to Vista.
Suggest you have your current ISP setting /account setup before copying to Vista

Let me know if this works for you!
Good Luck & Kind Regards.
