    Sadly, you don't. Microsoft discontinued support for O.E., yrs ago.

    Now, you need to use Windows Live Mail.

    If you have OE data [ address book ], msgs on disks or flash drives, you can import it to Windows Live Mail.

    Here are 3 links, to get you started.

    Microsoft Outlook Express was the built-in email app that came with Windows XP.

    Windows Mail was the built-in email app that came with Windows Vista.

    Both could be configured and used with your Internet Service Provider-based email.

    No built-in Email app came with Windows 7, so it became necessary to use a web-based app or a third-party app.
