  1. Howdo,

    Now before you start there IS a good reason for this.

    My computer illeterate boss is having major headaches getting to grips
    with the recent Office XP install and Outlook XP - "its too
    complicated, I like what I had."

    So Im going to sort Express out for him again.

    Its still on his PC, all I need to do is configure his email account.

    Any body forsee any issues with this???

    Thanks :)

    Just go ahead and configure OE. When done, go to Tools/Options and on the
    General tab, select "Make Default".

    Well, I'd double-check my spelling with everything .. since dropped
    punctuation can cause a server to not respond <B-)

    Set OE to a) read everything in plain text, b) to NOT respond in the
    original format, and c) in IE, disable EVERYTHING in the "Restricted" zone.
    If you don't disable, then set it to "Prompt". Also, d) in IE, set "Install
    on Demand" off for all instances.

    In addition, make absodamnlutely certain that ALL security updates
    from Microsoft are applied, after installind IE6 SP1 to that machine ...

    With that done, OE is actually a better mail client than Outlook,
    since setting to plain text and restricting all scripts will keep it from
    autorunning the spammer / trojan scripts.
