Outlook Express 6.0


The interface of Outlook Express is very recognizable, because the app has been out there since the introduction of Windows 3.1. That's why it came as integrated part right until Windows Vista was developed. For this OS Microsoft decided to replace the program with Windows Mail, which is actually based on Outlook Express. This decision was also based on the fact that the interface of the program is very well-known, so it was transferred in a large proportion into Windows Mail. The latest version of Outlook is with a different design, but some features still carry the legacy that was left by Outlook Express. There is again a separate tab for Inbox, Send or Delete, but now the newer version has a smoother look, because we should all move on at some point. But if you like the older style, then you can download Outlook Express and it will perform in the same way like it used to.

Basic Operations

Outlook Express works in the same way, which means that you can still save your e-mails and you can keep them on your hard drive like in an integrated database. The app saves your address book too or creates replies or forwards new e-mail. There are also the standard functions delete, find, print and some other utilities that are accessible from the menu. One of the good sides is that you receive your e-mails in plain and rich text which means that you can use the text that you've received in other programs, which want simpler text formats.


Outlook Express works only on older Windows versions so download it if you use one of the listed above. But if you use one of the compatible operating systems you will find out that you can use this program for managing all of your e-mail accounts with ease. But if this is not the case, then we recommend IncrediMail or Mozilla Thunderbird to you, apps that are free and at the same time compatible with newer operating systems.
