Read Microsoft Mail (Postoffice) from Outlook Express

Can you tell me how can I send and receive mail from a Microsoft  Mail (postoffice) account , using Outlook Express?
In other words, can you define a Microsoft Mail account in Outlook Express ?


1 Solution
No you can't, Unless your Microsoft Mail setup has a Pop3 (internet mail) gateway on it.
Outlook express is only an Internet Mail client. It does not support any proprietary mail protocols.
Outlook 97/98 however does support microsoft Mail.  Get a copy of the full Outlook if you must connect to Microsoft Mail
