Hi there, please please can someone let me know where or how i can download outlook express v5 ? this is very urgent, i have a pc with win95 running and the users email was on outlook express 5 before, it is a very old pc and doesnt seem to want to load Win98 so i put 95 on it, but as a result i dont have outlook express 5.

Hi deadlydave,
if you used a cd to install windows 95, then make sure internet explorer is installed and outlook express v5 should already be installed and integrated into internet explorer. this in fact is the way microsoft says you must obtain outlook express, though i've been trying to find a way around that but haven't yet!

Here's a web site which links to ie5setup.exe which would install OE as well:

You can download Outlook Express 5 as part of the Internet Explorer 5.5 download from Microsoft.
