The only way to run Outlook Express is using XP Mode in either Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Ultimate:

How to use OE in Windows 7

If you use Windows 7 Home Premium, then you could install XP as a virtual machine and then run Outlook Express in that.

My recommendation would be to shift from Outlook Express and go with Thunderbird.

Thanks. I'm familiar with Thunderbird (been using it myself since I got the Win 7 System). But migrating my OE mail to TB initially was a hassle. Since I figure I'll end up doing it, I was looking for something with a faster/easier transition. But I have a hunch she'd have more trouble with XP Mode than with the transition to TB, so, depending on what else I get in the way of answers (regarding the DOS and 16 bit Windows programs), I'll probably go with TB.
