    My OS is Win98. A few months ago, I downloaded Internet Explorer which requires me to use Hotmail. I hate it. Is there anyway I can return to Outlook Express? Everything pertaining to Outlook is still on my computer, except I can't use both systems. I didn't know what I was getting into when I made the change. I also don't care for MSN for a home page. Thanks for your help.

    ;) Hello Norade,

    Go to Start/control Panel. Double click on Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab. Click on the arrow to the right of "Email". Highlight Outlook Express. Click OK. Restart the computer. While you are in there you can set the "Home page" to whatever you like under the General tab. Hope this helps. KW1

    It doesn't "require" that you use hotmail. Go to tools>internet options and then go to the programs tab and set Outlook as your default mail program. If you don't ahve an ISP other than MSN or web based email you won't be able to use Outlook. You can change your startup page on the first tab in Tools>internet options as well.
