Click start, Click RUN, type: msimn.exe, Press <ENTER> outlook express should open. If it does, then you can create a new shortcut on the desktop by Right Clicking the blank desktop, Click NEW, Click Shortcut, type the path: "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" then finish the wizard.

If msimn.exe give an error, the go to add/remove programs, Click Add/remove Windows Components, Check the checkbox next to Outlook Express, Click Next and finish the wizard (You may be prompted for your Windows XP CD)

If you are using Windows Vista, it doesn't include Outlook Express, Vista uses Windows Mail for the default mail handler.

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.

I want to logout from outlook express


Hello,

Thank you for using Fixya!

Outlook does not have a logout option rather you just need to close the application (Outlook) and this will automatically log you off.

Hope this was informational.

Thank you,

I reloaded vista and now have microsoft outlook but want outlook express and can not find it on my PC, (gateway GT5228)


Microsoft Outlook Express does not have its own setup program. Outlook Express is distributed as the mail client for Microsoft Internet Explorer. The Internet Explorer setup program includes the option to install Outlook Express. So, download IE latest version and install OE in it.

Vanishing text


save your emails and messages of of your C drive. Save to a usb or other media. This applies to Outlook incredimail or anything other than like hotmail, or things like that. Put in your OS disk, go to add other, select the items that you want to install and make sure you include everythiny you need even though its already in your machine. This is like reinstalling the acessories in your machine like it was new. let the software run.
when it reboots .. go to your email and from the file pull down menu, import you emails and messages back into your email software. Be advised that Outlook, not outlook express, will give you a hell of a time getting the info back in. Try to use (as export) microsoft email choice. Good Luck

Burn Outlook Express files onto disk


You can make a copy of your .pst file which essentially holds all of your email. Do a search of your computer for *.pst. Make a copy and paste where you know you can find it. Right click the copy of the file and select send to cdrom from the drop down list. You're task bar will pop up saying you have files waiting to be written to cd. Click this windows, select burn files to cd from the left menu.

In Outlook Express, it will not let me read e-mails. It says "not enough memory". Help content does not list this problem. Scan disk & defrag do not solve either.


I might advised you to reinstall the Outlook Express to the computer. Check some of software that is install to the computer you might uninstall some of them. Check the specification of the Outlook Express, and also the memory to the computer is not reading the outlook properly.

Most desktop icons disappeared, Outlook Express can't open msgs.


Hello,

system infected by virus so you need to scan it using potent antivirus,
Yo can download free AVG antivirus at free avg website(you can search it in google) download and install. however the infection is severe then you need to remove your hard drive and then attach it to other computer and then scan that drive until all virus is deleted. if this not resolve the issue then you have to back up your files and then format and reinstall the operating system.

To install outlook express


Hello Wayne!
I take it you are in possesion of a registered/legal copy of Microsoft Outlook? if so and you have Windows operating system installed on the new P.c. then pop the Disc in the drive and wait.
If it doesn't auto load click start then my computer, on this screen you should see the drive and what is there, click on it and then on either install or explore.
If you open explore look for install file click on this and Bingo Express should then install.
If you are not successful please come back to me with operating system and any other details you come across during the failed installation.
Good Luck!

OUTLOOK EXPRESS BACKUP FILE


BAK and BK files usually are backups of other documents or files.

The BAK (or BK) file extension normally represents files that are backup copies of other file. There is no 'standard' file format for BAK files. BAK files can represent virtually anything.

This link will take you to an on-line storage of software I have. Download and run easyrecovery pro. Select E-Mail repair. Select Outlook express.

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.
