    I'm currently running Outlook 2000, but it's got loads of stuff I never use. Whats the difference between the 2 and which is best if all I use is mail??

    I'm feeling kinda stupid writing this as I'm now thinking that Expres would be the best, but I'm just after a few opinions

    Yeah, same here. I gave it a try. Didn't really need the extras.

    Outlook is really nice when it comes to system migration and backup. Do a search for *.pst and backup this one file and all your mail is saved. If you change over to another system it is quick and easy to import the old pst into the new one. Still it is true that most of us do not fully use more than 20% of the features.

    I use Outlook 2002, and I must admit that Outlook Express has many of the features Outlook has. However, I would still reccomend Outlook 2002. If you don't need a feature... Well, just don't use it. If it's something like the journal or the calander, just delete that shortcut from the Outlook bar.

    Whoops, I guess you're talking about Outlook 2000. Oh well, they're practically the same thing anyway.

    I prefer Outlook XP and think it is much easier to use. I also think it's much easier on the eyes and more organized than OE.

    I agree with madmatt. Note that Outlook XP is the same as 2002.

    I like Outlook XP however it doesn't do newsgroups, so until then i'll stick with Outlook Express 6.

    Outlook 2002 is included with Office XP, which is a pay program. And yes, Outlook 2002 does do newsgroups. Just search for "newasgroups" in help.
