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:

How I configure my outlook 2007 with rediffmail


Try the below steps

* Click "Next."

Cannot send/recieve mail outlook express

If you have installed Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, it will set itself as your default mail client. Hit the Windows ball or Start button on the lower left of the desktop - All Programs - Outlook Express. When it opens; hit File - Export - To Outlook (Messages). Outlook Express will export all of your messages, contacts and account settings to Outlook 2007 and you will be able to use the better, upgraded Outlook Mail client.

Outlook emails are blank


What version of Outlook? Unless I hear otherwise, I'll assume you're running
Outlook 2007.

I'm not sure I completely understand what you mean. On a "common" setup,
going from left to right; you have your Navigation Pane, Message List, and
then the Reading Pane (Preview Pane).

What I'm getting out of this is: Your messages are all showing-up in the
Message List. However, you can't see the actual body of the message in the
Reading Pane. When you open the message, you still can't see the actual body
of the message.

Do I have this right? Or, are you saying there is some Window popping-up
behind the main Outlook Window and the message Windows when you open a
message? If so, what is that Window titled? Is there an error or something
on that Window?

If the issue is the message body is no longer displaying in the Reading Pane
or when you open a message, I need to ask if you're using some type of
anti-virus scanner that is hooking into e-mail. I believe AVG is the popular
culprit. There is a "Certify Mail" option in AVG we want to disable.

If there is no AV scanner in-play here (AVG or otherwise), open one of these
Now, select the Options tab above the Ribbon. What format is highlighted
here? Plain Text, HTML, or Rich Text? If it's either of the latter two
formats, try selecting Plain Text (Select Continue on the warning box). Can
you see the body of the message now?
Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Cannot open outlook window - had it open checking e-mail and computer 'jammed up' and would not do anything - shut down and restarted - tried to open outlook and window flashed open (white) and immediately...

You could try and repair office by going into add/remove programs if it's XP, or programs and features if its vista.

Both are found in control panel.

Find your office 2003 line in add/remove programs, click uninstall, and you should get a repair option. YOu will probably need the disk to repair it.

Outlook express

Are you using Outlook?
open Outlook, then click on help, then on drop down menu, cick on "detect and repair"

If that does not work:
Go to :
Control Panel
Add/Remove programs
when the windows opens up , scroll down to MS Office, then click on change.
A window will open and the second choice should be "repair" You may need to have your MS Office handy.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Outlook 2007

if the message had a file or picture in it sometimes you will have to zip it to compress it and secure it as it may be caused by the way the programme sends packets of information.

Out of Office Responder

Hi Lalita, are you using outlook express in XP? If so, there is no one click solution. Firstly you have to create a new notepad document, open this in START>Programs>Accessories>Notepad. With this open, type the message you would like to be forwarded when you are out of the office. When you are happy with it, save it in your my documents folder as 'outofoffice'. You should now have the file 'outofoffice.txt' in your mydocuments folder. Next go into outlook express, goto Tools>message rules>Mail...>. A four part dialog box should appear. Under "1. Select Conditions for your rule" scroll to the bottom of the list and add a check mark to "For all messages". Under "2. Select Actions for your rule", check off "Reply with message". Under "3. Rule description" the follow items will now be listed: Apply this rule after the message arrives For all messages Reply with message You will see that 'meesage' is underlined, click on it, a dialog will open, make sure is 'my documents' folder, in 'files of type' drop down choose *.txt. (nearly there promise!) Your file 'outofoffice.txt' should appear, click it then click open. in rule description call it something like 'when out of office' and click ok. The rule dialog should now be there, the box will be ticked, that means you auto responder is turned ON. To turn off uncheck this box, and check it when you leave the office. If you close it, to find the rule again, just navigate to tools>message rules>mail..> and will show you the dialog again to turn it on and off. I hope that was reasonably clear, if not or you don't have outlook express leave a comment and I will try and help you further, otherwise Lalita, I hope this has helped! Si :)

Microsoft outlook express

This sounds like a virus. there are no settings that allow messages to double-up. Run an Anti-Virus that will check your E-mail aswell as the rest of your software. Hope this helps.
