I want to change my e-mail from Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook. I have Outlook installed on my PC (obviously!) but when I go into Internet Options and change the default e-mail to Outlook, I can never receive any mail. I have to go back to Outlook Express to retrieve my mail.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

have you setup your mail account in outlook?

It won't just take the settings from outlook express, you have to enter the details of your mail servers, username and password manually.

on the tools menu select accounts and add a new mail account using the mail details supplied by your mail provider.
Or just go into Outlook, Select File/Import or Export, choose the import option for importing from Outlook Express
To be honest I dont think you will gain much going from Outlook Express to Outlook.

In fact there are some things in Outlook Express (like a newsgroup viewer) that are not in Outlook.
normally the settings look something like
this is bt as isp
incoming
pop3.btconnect.com

outgoing
smtp.btconnect.com

Oh dear neildownx, you wouldn't last long in a professional environment with an attitude like that. The whole of the business world more or less uses Outlook, I have done so for years and years and never had a problem with it. You can't incorporate Outlook Express into the rest of your Office package and quite frankly why would you want to?. Yes it might have a simpler user interface for the non IT literate out there but it's a dinosaur in comparison. If you think back-ups are easier in OE than Outlook then I suggest you don't know how to use Outlook . Even Vista now uses an Outlook based Windows Mail so it looks as though you're going to have to remain in the Stone Age with your operating system if you want to carry on with OE
