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.
