outlook express urgent help please

  iqs 10:28 09 Mar 2007

I accidently uninstalled Outlook Express via add/remove programs.At the time I was using BT's own e-mail service.Now I am signing with Virgin Media,the problem,they use Outlook.I have tried to locate the software from Microsoft,it comes as a package with IE 6 sp1,which I already have.

I checked in Program files,and found the Outlook folder.There are 12 sub folders,one is called MSIMU.EXE.When clicked it open the Oulook e-mail page.
How to I reinstall Oulook,so it listed in ADD/REMOVE and also listed in All Programs please.Any help is greatly appreciated.Thanks

Do you want to install OUTLOOK or OUTLOOK EXPRESS?

To reinstall OE - ADD/Remove programs - Add windows components - tick the Outlook Express box click next.

Outlook is part of MS Office.

Hi Technotiger,I have downloaded Outlook,but when I click to install,a box appears asking to search the internet,or select a program to use to open.Neither options will install Outlook.

Hi Fruit/\0/\.I have not set up an e-mail address yet,I was waiting until Vigin Media is installed.Can one be created brfore?.

Thank you both for your help.Regards,Mike

Strange ?? did you click on the Download Now button? Tucows downloads are usually very accurate.
