Outlook Express First, you need to start Windows XP and launch Outlook Express. If you have a dual-boot configuration (Windows XP and Windows Vista) you should export everything to a location that is accessible from both operating systems. If you have Windows XP installed and you plan to erase it and upgrade to Windows Vista, we recommend that you save everything to a back-up disk and import from it later, after you install Windows Vista.

Exporting the Address Book
Go to the File menu, select Export and click on Address Book.
The Address Book Export Tool will be launched. Select the second option - Text File (Comma Separated Values) - and click on the Export button
You will be asked to select the path where you want to export your Address Book. Click on Browse, go to the folder where you want to save your Address Book, type the name of the file in which it will be saved and click the Save button.
The CSV Export window will open. Here you will have to select which contact details you want to export. Select the ones you want or, for more safety, select all the fields and then press the Finish button.
The Address Book has now been exported to the chosen location.

Exporting E-mail Accounts Settings
In Outlook Express, go to the Tools menu and then select Accounts.

A window with all your internet accounts will be opened. Go to the Mail tab and from the list of e-mail accounts select the first you want to export. Click on it and then press Export. You will choose the folder and the file name where your settings will be exported. After that, click on Save.

Repeat this procedure for all the e-mail accounts you want to export to Windows Mail.

Exporting E-mail Messages
Go to Tools and then select Options.
Go to the Maintenance tab and click on the Store Folder button.
A small window will open and you will see the location where Outlook Express stores all your e-mail messages. Copy that location, close Outlook Express, open that location in Windows Explorer and then copy all the content to a different location.
If you have a lot of messages, the process will take quite some time to finish.

Windows Mail
After you have finished the export process, reboot and start or install Windows Vista. When you are ready to import all your e-mail accounts, messages and address book to Windows Mail, go to the Start Menu - All Programs and launch its shortcut.
IMPORTANT: during the importing process we recommend that you run Windows Mail as an administrator. If you do not run it as an administrator the import process might fail.
Importing the Address Book
In Windows Mail, go to the File menu, select Import and then Windows Contacts.
In the Import to Windows Contacts window, select the first option - CSV (Comma Separated Values) - and press the Import button.
Now you have to Browse to the file where you exported the Address Book from Outlook Express and then press Open. When you are done press Next.
In the CSV Import window choose the fields you want to import. If you are not sure which fields to select, select all of them and press the Finish button.
Now the Address Book has been moved from Outlook Express to Windows Mail.

Importing E-mail Accounts Settings
First, go to Tools -> Accounts. In the Internet Accounts window, press the Import button.
Now you have to browse to the location where you exported your e-mail accounts settings and select the file containing those settings.
Repeat this procedure for all your e-mail accounts. All the restored accounts settings will be listed in the Internet Accounts window.
Importing E-mail Messages
Go to the File menu, select Import and then click on Messages.
In the Windows Mail Import window, you need to select the third option - Microsoft Outlook Express 6 - and click on Next.
Select Import mail from an OE6 store directory and press the OK button.
Now you have to browse to the folder where you exported all your e-mail messages, click the Select folder button which takes you to the next screen at which point you then press Next.
Select the message folders you want to import and press Next.
After the import is finished, the wizard will show a Import Complete message. Press the Finish button.
Now all your e-mail messages from Outlook Express will be available in Windows Mail. By default, all your imported messages will be placed in the Imported Folder. You can move them to any other folder using the drag and drop procedure.

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 have windows mail and would like outlook express. Is there somewhere I can download it for free or do I have to buy a program?


If you have Windows Mail, you no doubt are running Windows Vista. Sorry, but Outlook Express is not supported in Vista. You are stuck with Windows Mail or a third-party mail client. FYI, I use Thunderbird and am quite satisfied. It works with Windows XP through Windows 7

Here is a link to the download of OE 6.0 http://www.tucows.com/preview/194179 Outlook Express is a part of Internet Explorer 4.0 through 6.0. It is a part of Windows XP. If you have Vista or Windows 7 you cannot use Outlook Express. Vista has Windows Mail preinstalled. Windows 7 has no installed desktop mail program. However you can download and use Windows Live Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird in Windows 7

Outlook express not avilable


what operating you're using? if it's windows vista or 7 there's really no outlook express available to them. for vista, it's window mail. for 7, it's windows live mail. if you're using xp and outlook express is missing, the easiest way for you is too install service pack 3. it does not matter if you already have sp3 installed.

Acer Aspire 1690 cooling problem whit windows vista


Windows Vista is a very demanding Operating system when it comes to system resources and it doesnt come as a shock to hear that you computer runs warmly, If you werent experiencing any problems when you had windows XP installed, I would suggest downgrading to Window XP, otherwise wait for October 22 and purchase a genuine copy of Windows 7 and use that.

Vista Business and XP


Have you installed SP1 for Vista? This was supposed to help with some of the speed issues. However, I am on XP, having experienced both, and not yet willing to deal with the issues surrounding Vista, as there are just too many. On another note, MS is offering free support for issues following installation of SP1 (see https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?prid=11274&gprid=500921), so it could be that, assuming that you can make them understand this is related to SP1, and that they could zero in on the reason for your speed issue, you might decide you want to stay with Vista. At any rate...

As for the mail, it sounds as though you have been using the Windows Mail included with Vista exclusively. There is not a "Windows Mail" program for Windows XP. The exact solution to the question of how to bring your mail back over depends on what you used previously, and what type(s) e-mail accounts you have/had. You could take a look at Windows Live Mail (it's free, at least for now) at http://get.live.com/wlmail/features#ID0E2BAC and see if this would do it for you.

However, aside from the Vista/Mail/Live Mail combination, the solution for mail in going back to an XP OS depends on what you use and did use for mail previously. If you have an account with an ISP from which you are downloading your mail, you should be able to put copies of those messages back on the server by, in effect, e-mailing them to yourself if no other choices are available. (The individual choices / features depend heavily on the ISP and e-mail provider you are using.) I would say to just make sure you have things set in Windows Mail NOT to download the messages from the ISP before you start sending them to yourself.

Then, once you have reconverted back to XP and installed whatever program you will use to handle your mail (Outlook Express?), download them back in. You can export from Windows Mail or Outlook Express into Outlook - reference http://support.microsoft.com/kb/196347/en-us - so this may represent another choice. The downside with this is that the date/time exported will end up being the date/time on the message in Outlook.

To summarize, no there is no Windows Mail - in XP, the only equivalent is Outlook Express. You will have to go to some effort regardless of the choice, but there are several ways to get your e-mail back down to the new choice. Best of luck, and if you need more info, please post back. Otherwise, thanks for rating FixYa!

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.
