Outlook is the big brother of Outlook Express and adds a whole range of things that you may or may not want - calenders, contacts and its a personal organiser sort of program too. The only thing it won't do that Outlook Express will is access to Usenet. However a lot depends on what you want to do - just to send and receive mail, Outlook Express is fine, though it has been discontinued support-wise.
Personally I'm not a fan of Outlook and I'm not exceptionally keen on Outlook Express's replacement, Windows Live Mail either. Thunderbird, which is a free e-mail client, looks remarkably similar to Outlook Express, does everything it does and a little bit more, and you can get the functionality of Outlook via the extensions too.

The only thing that Thunderbird won't do is access Hotmail accounts, but the Webmail extension and appropriate plug-ins will get round that.
