I currently use outlook express but was curious would it be better to use OUTLOOK 2003 when it comes out with the new office 2003 suit?

Any + or - to either one?

What do you folks prefer?

The Outlook products have the INFURIATING habit of stripping certain file types from my emails. I use Eudora. It doesn't assume I'm an idiot who needs protection from himself.

If you need just a mail client, take a look at Thunderbird - http://www.mozilla.org/projects/thunderbird/
One of the major plus points is that it uses Bayesian filtering to intelligently get rid of spam/junk mail. This technique is definitely the most effective way of filtering spam.
Some other great features include themes, downloadable extensions, and security. You can open an email infected with the Klez worm and you won't be affected. ;)

If you want a personal information manager along with just an email client, to store tasks, calendar events etc, Outlook 2003 is your best choice. Outlook2k3 also includes Bayesian junk mail filtering (which is a killer feature).I would definitely use it over Outlook Express, if you don't want to take the Thunderbird route. :)

I've yet to been spammed with OutLook Express 6 (even without any special "filtering" programs). It all hinges around on who you give your email address to (make sure they have an email agreement).:)

I've never had that problem. :confused: What kind of files?

I use Outlook for its simplicity, and OE when I'm in the mood to use calendars, and reminders.

You mean the other way around ;)
OE is a simple mail client. Outlook is the complete PIM.

You give it to one person who has a damn worm, he decides to mass email everyone instead of using bcc he cc's it, and my email addy lands in over 50 mail boxes, 6 of them got viruses, so there it starts, then it becomes more as they once again send on the email.

It sucks, but it happens.

Outlook is the best - the only thing I don't like about it as that it has a security feature on that don't let you read some html emails and macros ..

Outlook 2003 is quite nice. It all depends on how and what you want it for. If you will only use it for a simple email client then there are dozens to choose from and most are free. If you need a personal information manager (PIM) then hands down Outlook (2000 or 2003) is the way to go but remember they do cost money.
Or if you really feel confident you could try Open Office but it can be a bit daunting for Windows users but it is free.

I use to receive my e-mails all 20 of my hotmail ones and 2 i.s.p. ones using mail washer pro V3.1.0 (registered) and to send I use the short cut for outlook I created on my desktop.
Quite easy (if you not already know) right click desktop, create new shortcut, type in mailto: next then I call it --QuickMail--
then finished. If I want to use a fancy e-mail then I use it via out look express and add the thrills like stationary.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
