Substitute for Outlook Express

  bruno 14:35 20 Mar 2007

I have had long term trouble with O/E freezing and I am looking for a replacement programme.I want something that will enable me to receive Sky,Metronet and Hotmail.I have Outlook 2000 but it will not let me update to the later version,for some reason.Any suggestions welcome.

Do you have IE 6 or higher with 128bit encryption, I believe this is required to download Outlook 2003/7?

Yes,I have IE7.I don't know about the 128 encription bit though.

IE 7 has 128 bit encryption. Click on Help/About Internet Explorer in IE this will tell you which version you have.
