Using two email programs.

Post by OldByte » Tue Aug 03, 2004 2:53 pm

I Use two different e-mail programs: Outlook Express and Outlook.
I set Outlook Express as default program, but now it is impossible to start Outlook. I need both programs to keep my emails seperated. I don't wont to mix my private mail with the mail from the site I take care of.
Can anybody help?

OldByte,

Just setting OE as the default mail handler shouldn't affect your full Outlook client. They both should be able to run seperately (though you will have to actually click on the Outlook shortcut to start it).

You didn't say what happens when you try to start Outlook, so it is hard to tell you what may be the problem.

Just to get you somewhere to start, try running scandisk on Win9x or WinME or on Win2000 or WinXP run chkdsk and follow the instructions to restart your computer. This will check for corrupt files just in case you have a simple problem.

Get a program like Pegasus Mail. You don't need Outlook.... really. :lol:

I could have recommended several email programs, but that would be just ignoring OldByte's problem. For that matter, most email programs support filters to move email from different accounts into seperate folders and then OldByte wouldn't need but one email program, but again it doesn't address the problem.
