Is there any way to use Outlook Express with WIN7?

    Is there any way to use Outlook Express with Windows 7? I bought Outlook
    2007 to try it but I can't see anyway to write a rule that routes email from
    a specific account to a particular folder.

    I had Outlook Express set up perfectly on my old XP machine but now I've got
    to start over.

    And, of course, Windows Live Mail doesn't communicate with my Blackberry.

    Thanks,

    Rick Morrison

    No. OE is history.

    Try Thunderbird.

    Try Thunderbird. Get it at http://www.mozilla.com/thunderbird/ It's much
    better in many ways than OE.

    I have many rules set up in Outlook 2007 to route my mail from the 7 email
    accounts it checks. In the Mail Section of Outlook click on Tools, then
    Rules and Alerts. The process is very similar (though not the same) as in
    OE.

    Check messages when they arrive. Step 2, the box says Apply this rule
    after the message arrives, click next. Click the box by through the
    specified account, then on the Step 2 box, click on specified, and
    select the account, click next, then check the box next to "move to the

    Continue with the process until the rule is finished.

    Apparently, Blackberry software is hard coded for Outlook, only, so
    you're pretty much limited.

    Although, this sounds worth investigating.

    What if I have a BlackBerry device?

    Win Live Mail is almost the same as Outlook Express and you can read
    newsgroups in it like Outlook Express.

    Just Google something like "how to run Outlook express on windows 7" - it
    will give the results.

    I have to warn you though. I did this with Win Mail and it works just fine
    but..... if you want to import messages from your XP/Vista installation it
    may not work. I found when I tried to import messages they were empty
    folders or some empty some partially complete. It seemed to importat my
    address book OK which was good.

    Two questions:

    Which version of Windows 7 do you have? If you have Professional or
    Ultimate, You can Install the XP VM.

    How much trouble are you willing to go to? If it's worth it to you,
    Install the XP VM, and then when you want to use Outlook Express Open
    the XPMODE window.

    I've got 5 rules that move msgs to the correct folder in OL 2007.

    If you haven't already , create the folders

    Go to TOOLS > RULES AND ALERTS> NEW RULE

    Ignore the suggested templates and go to the bottom and start from a blank
    rule > Check msgs when they arrive.

    Select " Through the specified account'.

    It will appear at the bottom. Click SPECIFIED and select your target account
    from the drop down list. Next .

    Select move it to the specified folder ( click the folder at the bottom ,
    select it ) NEXT..do not apply any exceptions..

    Off you go !
