Reading emails

  Mollo 15:20 22 Sep 2008

Is it possible to read emails generated from a Vista (Windows email) on an XP (Outlook Express)or are they incompatible?

If you mean, can you read an email on your PC using Outlook Express, which has been sent to you from a PC using Windows Mail, the answer is yes.

The format for emails used by all POP compliant email programs is the same.

Thanks for your quick response Pine Man.
Now can you tell me why some attachments (pictures) wont open?

in Outlook Express, see if you have images blocked;

Tools>Options>Security and UNtick the box next to "Block images and other external content in html mail"

That might be the reason.

good luck,
