    My old machine is Win XP Professional running Outlook express 2003 with IE 7
    loaded. My new machine is running Vista with only Microsoft Mail loaded on
    it. From discussion threads it appears I need to export from Outlook 2003 to
    Outlook Express and that I need to install Outlook Express on my old computer
    to occomplish this. I downloaded OutLook Express 6.0 (ie6setupOe.exe) and
    attempted to install it on my old computer and when I run setup it tells me:
    "Setup has deteccted a newer version of IE already installed on system."

    Can someone provide me with the simplest option to get my Outlook 2003 mail
    from my old machine to Microsoft Mail on my new machine.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. 1. There is no "Outlook express 2003".

    2. The WinXP machine already has Outlook Express 6. Go to Start | Run and

    It may be simpler to install your Outlook 2003 on Vista (it will work fine)
    and set it to use your old PST file. I think you'll be much happier using

    Re: this post; Frank; do you mean, MS Outlook; or Outlook Express? And, if
    I want to use just OE on my new WinVista notebook, can I download OE from
    that OE website and get it to work on Vista? Might solve my sending
    problem, and I know I'd like using Address Book instead of Win Contacts.

    Thanks, Mari

    Outlook Express will not work on Vista.
    Windows Mail replaced OE on Vista.

    Outlook 2003 can be installed and works well on Vista.

  5. I say Outlook when I mean Outlook and Outlook Express when I mean Outlook

    You cannot install Outlook Express on Vista.
