Outlook Express is for mail only.
Outlook is for mail, meeting scheduling, tasks, maintaining contacts, and tracking your use of other MS Office applications (using Journal, to track when did you make, or edit such&such document) and I'm sure a few other things, as well.
I would like to set up an email account in Outlook -Windows ME. I have been using it for my tasks and contacts and would like to also receive email. Should I be using Outlook or Outlook Express? I don't know the difference.
Also, I have tried to set up an account in Outlook and I have yet to be successful. I have a lap top, use an Ethernet card and we have a cable modem. I am not very computer savvy and need a little guidance.
