Hi All
As an XP user with Outlook Express, I'm about to upgrade to Wnidows
7 and I'm wondering what options are best to replace OE and hopefully
migrate my existing emails and email accounts.
Thanks BB

Australian operatives acting for the Howard government of the time were complicit in this paying funds to the Indonesians, knowing about but deliberately failing to rescue the desperate people in the water then we stand condemned for a crime against humanity.

Don't upgrade to Windows 7 until the support runs out for XP or you get a
new computer with Win 7 preloaded. That's always the best way. XP is at
the moment a more stable system.

Yes you need a new computer to run WIN7. XP is a bit dated and suggest
your computer is to

The official approach is to use Windows Live Mail.

Main problem with it is that it wont quote usenet posts like this one.

The earlier version which is still downloadable will quote usenet posts tho.

The other real downside is that it has a separate inbox for each POP3 email account.

And it now keeps each email in a separate file.


You can continue to run OE if you install the free virtual XP that runs inside Win7 transparently.

This isnt available on the most primitive versions of Win 7 like Home tho.

Thats mad. No point in crippling along with XP for that long.

Its completely trivial to install yourself.

Nope.

Wrong.

No your dont. That depends entirely on what he is currently running XP on.

> XP is a bit dated and suggest your computer is to


You have absolutely no idea what he is running XP on.

What is crippling about it? I use both and there is nothing I can do in Win
7 that I can't do in XP.

What a waste of money and time. Name one good reason why people should
upgrade to Win 7.

XP is more stable because it's been around for longer and a lot of its loose
ends have been sorted out. There is no rationale for upgrading to Win 7.
People should wait until they get a new machine.

Using QuickViews you have have all Inboxes in the one view.

Who cares? This prevents corruption. They wouldn't have got rid of DBXs
for no good reason.
