    Outlook express is included with just about every version or windows... If you can't find it then go to microsoft.com and download the latest version. Or you could get one of 80 gagillion other email clients, like the Nutscrape one or Eudora.

    What's wrong with Outlook? What's it doing that makes you say it's toasted?

    Sounds like configuration problems to me, and the spam is because your email address has been put on a bunch of spammer lists, you'll get bombed with any email client. When you register on pR0n sites that kind of stuff happens. [​IMG]

    When I went with Firefox for my browser, I installed Thunderbird also, it's really nice and not as big of a departure as Firefox was from IE

    Time to upgrade.
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.mspx

    To block spam. Use the block senders list in the Message button on the IE tool bar. You should also learn how to use the Message rules in the Tools button. There is a url blocking feature in there that works wonders with spam.

    Get gmail. Can't go wrong with 1GB of free email storage. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif You can only register for it by invitation. Don't ask me how to get the invitation, just go to ebay and buy one there for a couple bucks or you can wait until no invitation is needed.

    Download/Install Service Pack 2 for Windows XP.

    Microsoft rebuilt Outlook Express to handle junk mail better and recompiled some core files to help keep crap off your 'puter.

    Best of all ..... it's FREE! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
