I need to install Outlook Express in windows 7 and configure it as IMAP client to connect to Exchange server.
I cannot find Outlook Express in Windows 7. When I did some search, it took me Windows Live ID, then it prompted to connect using my Hotmail credentials, I wonder if this will get me to outlook express ?

any help

thanks

What kind of situation are you in that you have an Exchange account but you don't have Office Professional and Outlook?

Then you need Windows XP because that was the last version of Windows that would run Outlook Express.  Or you could use Firefox which will work with IMAP.

So now you have Outlook remotely that you are using to test IMAP and are no longer trying to use Outlook Express?

You could also try opensource Thunderbrid:

Do you manage the Exchange Server? Are you sure that the IMAP protocol is enabled on the server?

If you are using Exchange and it is a newer version you can setup Exchange over Proxy and use Exchange as if you were in your office. This would remove the need for IMAP and you would still get all the syncing just like normal. Can you please explain exactly what you are trying to achieve so we can help you better?
