How to Change an Email Address in Outlook Express

Microsoft Outlook Express is an email service that comes with Internet Explorer. You can send and receive emails, as with Hotmail or Live Mail, but you don't have as much control over the way Outlook Express looks or works--in other words, it's not as user friendly as other email services. However, Outlook Express does give users the opportunity to change their email addresses, which is something other email services don't offer. So in case your Outlook Express in-box is flooded with spam, you can easily change your email address and get back to your business.

Step

Open Microsoft Outlook Express and click on "Tools." A drop-down menu will appear, on which you'll click on "Accounts..."

Double-click on your email address to open it.

Step

Step

Step

Click on "Apply" and "OK" to set the changes.
