"Wow Yes! This really works on Windows 7/8!"

April 22, 2015  |  By andreaborman

 |  Version: OE Classic 2.31


Wow this really does work on Windows 7 and Windows 8. It is the original Outlook Express you know and love from Windows XP,Windows 2000 and past Windows Versions. I have tried to install Outlook Express from my Windows XP PC by copying the OE program file from XP to Windows 7 many times without success. So I though it could not be done. Then I found this program downloaded it and it works. I now have Outlook Express running on both Windows 7 and Windows 8. Also works on Windows Vista.


Over rights Windows Mail from Windows Vista by renaming it Windows Mail old.Making WM inactive. I think it's because they are both the same program or share the same files. Windows Mail being a later version of Outlook Express. If you still want to run Windows Mail as well you need to re-name the Windows Mail Old file back to Windows Mail again. Then you can run both OE and WM side by side.Though they may conflict with each other. Have to test that out more.


This IS Outlook Express 6 from Windows XP that's been made to work on Windows 7 and Windows 8. The only disadvantage is that if you have Windows Mail from Windows Vista Outlook Express will over right it and Windows Mail wil stop working. But as I said before I found when I re named the Windows Mail Old file back to Windows Mail ,Windows Mail was working again. And I found that both Outlook Express and Windows Mail CAN be run together on Windows 7. Though you can only have one or the other as your default email program not both.I fully recommend this program for any Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 Users who wants to have Outlook Express, which is much bdeter than Windows Live Mail 2012. I can tell you!
