    If I am now getting my e-mail on the MSN web page - (I have Windows 2000) and I would like to receive and send e-mail via Outlook Express, how can I accomplish this? What changes (configurations) need to be made.

    Can you walk me through the steps.

    Much Appreciated!!!!

    Went thru all that myself,...
    Sorry, but I'm almost positive that your now stuck with Hotmail,...unless you drop MSN...MSN only uses Hotmail, which you can transfer your Outlook stuff to,...
    Hotmail uses Messenger for popups of new mail, & all sorts of other really neat stuff,....unless you have a real need for Outlook, you should switch to Hotmail ( I know it's hard to change what your use to ) You'll really get to love what MSN has to offer between Hotmail & Messenger, if you give it a shot...you can add up to 9 different users with all their own settings & their own email...be sure to get the latest download of MSN 7, & the latest Messenger,...they have an all new twist to them...
    Tell ya what,...I'm glad my family switched...

    see-ya

    Actually, you can add any account you like to OE. Oe is possibly already set up to use through your ISP. Give it a shot, anything it asks for, like passwords, use the ones for your ISP. If you want to add the MSN o OE let me know. Let me know if you run into a snag on the OE also.
