Chapter 6. Exchanging Messages and News > Starting Outlook Express

Starting Outlook Express

Whether you want to exchange e-mail with colleagues and friends or join newsgroups to trade ideas and information, Outlook Express provides you with the tools you need. When you install Windows XP, a menu item for Outlook Express appears in the left column of the Start menu and the All Programs submenu. The first time you start Outlook Express, you need to set up an e-mail account. The Internet Connection Wizard walks you through the process. You can set Outlook Express as your default e-mail program so that whenever you click an e-mail link on a web page or choose the mail command in your web browser, Outlook Express opens. You can also set Outlook Express as your default news reader so that when you click a newsgroup link on a Web page or choose the news reader command in your Web browser, Outlook Express opens.

Start Outlook Express

Click the Start button.

Click Outlook Express.

TROUBLE? If Outlook Express doesn't appear in the left column of the Start menu, it's available on the All Programs submenu.

If the Internet Connection Wizard opens, follow the step-by-step instructions to set up your e-mail account.
