If you open up the Inbox icon you are running MS Exchange.  This is the basic messaging client that is distributed with Windows 95.  It also integrates with Microsoft FAX.  If you have Microsoft FAX installed then you can send a fax in two ways.

1) While Exchange is open you can pull down the compose menu and choose "New fax..."

2) You can use the Microsoft FAX printer device from any program.  You do this by selecting the Microsoft FAX as the printer that you want to print to.

When you want to send an email with exchange pull down Compose and choose New Message.

Outlook Express is a separate icon that is installed with MS Internet Explorer 4.X to provide email support.  It is a scaled down version of Outlook 97.  It does not provide many of the features that integrate with MS Exchange Server, but it is perfectly acceptable as an email mail and netowrk news client.  I don't know of any way to integrate faxing with the inbox structure of Outlook Express, unless you use an internet fax delivery service.

Outlook 97 & 98 are the full blown messaging clients that are recommended for use with MS Exchange Server.  These will provide additional features such as shared folders and automated forms when used with Exchange Server.  Outlook integrates mail and fax through the Compose menu similat to Exchange.
