outlook and outlook express

Hi People,

I have recently purchased Office 97 and before I install it on my windows xp system could you please tell me the answers to the following questions which concern the use of outlook and outlook express.

1. Can I run both of these on the same pc?

2. Can I have several email addresses on outlook as I have on OE?

3. Are there any security issues concerning running such an old email application?

Many thanks

1 Yes

2 Yes

3 Definitely yes.

Unless you need the features of Outlook (which is designed for a business environment) choose a custom install of Office and don't include Outlook. Stick to Outloook Express which is fine for e-mails.

OE and outlook: no problems.

Not sure about compatibility of Office97 and win XP.
