Anyone know where I can find a copy of Outlook Express to download?

And will it work on Windows 8?

Its for an older client who doesn't want to learn how to use something modern.


Thanks

I've got the same issue with some clients.   They just insist on things functioning and looking exactly the same forever.   It's just a different world now, we all have to adapt a bit, here and there.    On the bright side, once your client changes to one of these other apps, it'll probably be a while before they need to change again.  Outlook express is just so old now.

Yeah I hear ya. I try my best to do what they want, no matter how unreasonable it is. But in this case its not possible, and frankly i'm relieved! I already had to install Windows 95 and DOS for him on VMware (despite him insisting on me partitioning his hard drive and installing it the old fashion way!)
