How to Download and Install Outlook Express 6
There is no way to download and install the Outlook Express 6 email client all by itself from any reliable source. You can, however, get a copy of Outlook Express 6 by downloading and installing Internet Explorer 6, Microsoft's flagship Web browser from 2001 to 2006. The two programs are bundled together for free download from the Microsoft website. Outlook Express 6 is compatible with all Windows operating systems up to and including Windows XP.
Things You'll Need
- Windows NT, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, or Windows XP
Navigate your Web browser to the first link in References.
Click "Start download" on the next page if the download does not start automatically.
Save the file to your computer when prompted to do so.
Go to your downloads folder on your computer and double-click the file you downloaded to open it.
Click "Run" when prompted to do so and follow the installation wizard to complete the download and installation of Internet Explorer 6 and Outlook Express 6.
Tips & Warnings
- Many websites claim to offer Outlook Express 6 as a standalone download separate from Internet Explorer 6, but those options are risky, as they carry no guarantees or technical support from the manufacturer (in this case Microsoft.)
