How to Setup Outlook Express for Internet Mail
With Outlook Express, you can read your e-mail messages and participate
in newsgroups from the same program. If you have more than one e-mail
account, such as a work account and a home account, you can read
both sets of messages. In addition, Outlook Express enables several
people to use e-mail and newsgroup services on the same computer.
For example, each member of your family can establish an identity
in Outlook Express so that they each have their own e-mail accounts,
mail folders, and address book on the same computer.
