Outlook Express is a free program that comes with Internet Explorer.  Microsoft Outlook is a product sold by MS, usually as a component in Microsoft Office.  So there is no way of "upgrading", if you mean in the same way that you would upgrade IE 5.5 to IE 6.0, for example.  Outlook has a lot more built into it than just email service, which is basically what Outlook Express is for.  You can browse the Microsoft sites for more info.

Along the lines of upgrades.  Lee is right you can't upgrade it.  However you can import your mail settings, and I believe you can import your mail as well.  The Importing of the mail is something I am not totally sure you can do.  But I believe you can.

Outlook adds features such as a calendar with timed reminders, a journal for tracking time spent in office applications and a task list.

These features are usable as a stand-alone but really come into their own when Outlook is used as a client to and Exchange server since they will interconnect them with other users.

Outlook will detect Outlook Express profiles and offer to import them. It uses two modes of operation; on a LAN connection to the server (common with Exchange servers) or through a dial-up connection. In the latter mode it gives more control than Outlook Express. It uses existing Dial-up profiles to connect.

Outlook 2000 is not only a mail reader but add many options. It is a Personal Information Manager (PIM).

You will be able to add a Dial up Connection from the menu Tools / Options / Connection tab of Outlook Express.
1st you need to create a DialUp connection from The Start / Programs / Accessories / Communications / Dial-Up Networking.

Outlook Express will Export their mails and phonebook to Outlook 2000 from the menu File / Export.
