I currently use Outlook Express for my e-mail.

I use Outlook 2000 for work use, and notice that it has an e-mail function as well. How would I utilise the e-mail in Outlook.? Would I need a separate e-mail account to the one I currently have using Outlook Express or would I have to 'transfer' my O/E account over to Outlook...if so how is this done?

If possible I would like to keep my O/E e-mail account going but have the flexibility of using Outlook when I wanted.


Thanks

Open Outlook, click file, import and take your time using the wizard and in Outlook 2000 I believe you can import accounts, messages, settings and so on.

Just take your time and I don't think you will have any problems

I have Outlook XP or I would run through it for you.

Just getting curious, but why do you want to use Outlook at all for e-mail.

As per my experience, OE is far better than Outlook, at least for e-mail.

As for mail accounts, OE has and export button.
Go to Tools > Accounts > Export. Export an account and save as .iaf file.

Now in Outlook go to Tools > Accounts > Import. Here you can directly import your .iaf file. Simple. Right?

I guess you can do the same for Address Book. Save as .wab in OE and import it in Outlook.

I have never used Outlook for e-mail because I am a bit too comfortable in OE. So I may be wrong as regards Address Book. But you can check.
