Outlook express is no longer supported or supplied with windows, due to security issues. Microsoft's current eMail client is Windows Live Mail, (a download as part of The live essentials), although other free solutions are available.

Thank you. Can I download Outlook Express from Microsoft (for Windows 7)?

As stated Outlook Express is not available from Microsoft, for any Operating system, as far as I know. It was made obsolete with the release of Vista

Thank you. What I'm trying to do is import my contact data from Palm Desktop to a current PIM. I'm afraid that, if I have a problem with Palm Desktop, I won't be able to fix it (it is no longer supported). Any suggestions?

I do not actually use either Palm Desktop or Windows live mail, saying that, the generic method of transfer between PIMs should be applicable, although this may be complicated if both applications are no longer supported.

This link gives instructions for transfer of contact information between Palm Desktop and Outlook, and hopefully will work "out of the box" for Windows Live Mail. If there are differences in the structure then it should be possible to adjust the translation phase shown to meet your needs.

As a replacement for Outlook Express you may actually find that something like Mozilla Thunderbird is closer to the original than Live mail

Thunderbird - Software made to make email easier

Hopefully one of these methods will suit your needs

I'm unfamiliar with Palm Desktop.

Windows Live Mail is the replacement for Outlook Express. WLM supports several formats for importing contacts. Out of Gmail, I had the best luck with a .vcf file.

(The Windows Live Mail name is misleading. It isn't necessary to use Windows Live with it; you can use it as a vanilla email client. It also supports NNTP, which I haven't used for a couple of years.)

Thank you very much. I already use Thunderbird - for email. What I'm looking for is a contact manager (PIM). Maybe your "link" will work.

Have a look at the lightning add-on for thunderbird - this gives a PIM interface plus there are other add-ons to manage contacts/addresses
