Is Barmoor reading this? I don't know how to configure Outlook Express so as to keep my current e-mail address. I have Windows XP.
I'be grateful for your help.

If you are staying with the same ISP, then you don't have to change anything.

everything will work just as before, provided you are not changing your ISP. If you are, then you'll need to amend your mail account settings with the details of your new ISP's smtp server - as you're keeping your existing POP3 mail address all the other settings will stay the same.

Hello.

Hadn't seen you about for a while. Thought you'd done a runner.

Thanks folks for the help.Yes - I am of course going to use a different ISP, hence my query. I note what you say and hope I get it right!

I didn't know you could use the address from a previous ISP. Aern't you using their server then

If you are changing ISP you will not be able to use your existing email address.

That's what I thought. Can Forum Editor explain?
