I was having problems with OE, so I uninstalled it using Remove Outlook Express
. But this program is supposed to reinstall it. It won't. I did save my email from OE before I removed it. Is there an email program that functions locally as OE did--i.e., not having to go online to send/receive. Not Thunderbird I think because I've tried it and it was incredibly complex. As I recall it automatically imported all messages from OE, but there were duplicates--i.e., a kind of having two
OE's. However, I shall try it again since OE has been uninstalled. Perhaps it will allow me to import my messages manually.
Thinking that OE comes with IE, I downloaded IE, version 8. Well, it didn't install OE. Yet under Tools>Internet Options>Programs it lists E-mail: Outlook Express. I've done a search of my computer for the
file and there isn't one. I not sure that's a file I should be looking for or not.
Hope to hear about something from here. Meanwhile I will try Thunderbird again.
Thank you for your attention on this matter.
I will receive answers in OE on another computer.
