"I love my Outlook Express! It is the best as far as I'm concerned. I use it at home all the time. It is very user friendly, a big plus for me as I was computer illiterate when I first got connected to the internet. The way the layout can be customised is one of its great features. The menu bar has all the drop-down menus you would expect, allowing you to customise Outlook, export or import mail, and switch between mail accounts. You can customise ..." Read review

Lots of features

AdvantagesLots of features, easy to use

Disadvantagesnone I have encountered

"Outlook Express is an excellent email client. I use it at work all day long and find it extremely user friendly. It is as useful for the home user as the more advanced business user. It has a nice layout that can be customised to the way that you like it. The mails are listed on one side of the screen and the folders on the other side. The most impressive thing about Outlook is the number of ways in which you can sort and display information and ..." Read review

Comprehensive Review With Tips For Ciao Users

AdvantagesGreat for keeping email organised.

DisadvantagesHas problems with security.

"Outlook Express is an ‘Email Client’, this means that it can assist in managing your emails, and is pretty essential is you are planning on reading your email offline, or want to take advantage of POP3 email. (POP means post office protocol) Outlook Express 5.0 is not the newest version now (Outlook 6 has just been released), however, it is the most popular version as it comes free with Windows 98 and above and has previously been available ..."

The best mail client available

Advantageseasyt o use and customise, great help features - comprehensive, easily accessible, office assistant

Disadvantagesperhaps the fact that it can keep a copy of all your emails although im sure theres a feature to turn this off

"I have been on email since I first went to university in 1998, and Sheffield University use Pegasus Mail client, downloadable from Shareware, ZDNet and such sites for free. Whilst you can download some good quality modern versions of this mail client for free and it serves its purpose very well, it is very grey and boring and when I started using Office 2000 I decided to check out the infamous Outlook 2000 that was included on the CD. And I have ..." Read review

Look Out With Outlook Express

AdvantagesEasy to use, Wizards, very customisable indeed. Free!

DisadvantagesInsists on whirring with a news server that holds more than about 35,000 groups.

"...one of the things that Microsoft insists on installing on every PC whether you want it or not. It's not a bad newsreader, its just there have been so many security holes found in it that swiss cheese looks solid by comparision. The first thing to do when it's installed and spent a few minutes at reboot configuring and registering itself with the system, is to set your email accounts up with your POP3 and SMTP details so it knows where to go to ..."
