I'm afraid you won't find people very sympathetic to Outlook Express problems, as it's frankly not a very good e-mail client.

My personal preference is Eudora Pro, but you can get an excellent free client in Thunderbird, from the Mozilla developement team.
My advice? Switch to that and never look back. It will stay true to the settings you select at all times.

Not dealing with mckeop's error.  Regarding differenti e-mail clients, at the present I'm using Microsoft Outlook, never used Outlook Express (except if problems with M Outlook).  I use Microsoft Outlook, obviously for sending and recieving mail, and for its inbuilt calendar.

Do you suggest to remain using M Outlook?  I remember once I used Incredimail, but that have alot of unusable things in it and it's like for children use, even its shell etc... and don't like it.

What do you suggest? Sry mckeop.

MS Outlook is the lesser of two evils really.
Though I kept Outlook out of the picture when I installed the Office Suite on my computer. I don't like it at all, mainly due to the fact that it's targetted by all those trojan/worm/virus programmers out there. The other clients don't have that problem at this moment in time. The other clients are also not going to execute every embedded script, that's thrown at them, by default like Outlook and OE do.

The best thing to do really, is to test the various clients and see if you are comfortable with their layout and options. If you're not, then stay with what you have. Better the evil you know Wink
Just make sure that you're using a good Firewall/AV combo and no I'm not talking about bloody Norton Wink
