    A few months ago I moved my email from Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook. I don’t like Microsoft Outlook and would like to go back to Outlook Express. Is this possible? And what is involved? I really would just like to get my mail folders and address book back to Outlook Express. I have searched the Internet and have not been able to find any thing on it or anyone who has done it.

    Would it be just a matter of backing up my Microsoft Outlook email and importing it in Outlook Express??? Will OE allow you to do that???

    Any help would be appreciated. I am running Windows XP Home.

    (mooe)

    Open Outlook Express

    Go to File | Import | Messages | Microsoft Outlook (For emails)
    Go to File | Import | Other Address Book (For the address book)

    I was hoping it would be this simple but I was unable to find anything about switching back to Outlook Express on the Internet. I will give it a try and thanks for the info, putasolution.
