Is it possible to use OE on a laptop running W7, and if so any advise as to how to set this up would be appreciated.

Not sure if you can get Outlook Express to run on Windows 7 it does not come with it installed and they are supposed to stopping support for it shortly.

Or try Incredimail if you want a fun e-mail provider.It works ok on W/7.

A simple Google search would have given your answer and confirms precisely what MAT ALAN says NO!!!

No. I now use Outlook 2007 and regret the loss of OE as I was familiar with it and have not yet learned how to have two accounts / identities.

Your operating system dictates the default email program not your Office program.
