My Outlook Express has turned to shit - alternative anyone?.

I'm getting a continual hanging hourglass on OE that has over peaked my pissoffmeter.

Outlook is evil. I use Thunderbird for my home email, and Gmail for my online activities.

I always found Outlook Express very buggy but normal Outlook is OK.

Outlook (normal) usually comes as part of Microsoft Office.

When I used Mac (pre Windows days) I used Eudora which was pretty good. I think it is still a free download and should be able to import all your Outlook Express stuff - Google it.

You could always try the good ol' Windows fix and reboot.

Cheers guys. I've downloaded IE 7 and the OE crap now appears to have sorted itself out.

Yeah, they're harder to manage than a flock of sheep to be sure. Maybe you should stick to that instead.
