I use Microsoft Outlook Express for my email. It's there not because I preferred it, that's the package that was there when it was set up. It's simple to use and grumpy old men like simplicity and don't like change.
Anyway, every so often, I presume when Microsoft does some automatic update, it switches me to the full Outlook package. I don't want nor need all the frills of Outlook. I just want to be able to receive, open, save and send mail. This morning I go to check the mail, boom Outlook opens up, I close it, go back and change it back to Express, then re-open in Express.
I had noticed there were three new messages in Outlook before I closed it. When I reopen the mail in Express - no messages.
Is there anyway I can block Microsoft from switching me over to Outlook from Express? Is it a separate program I can delete ?
