This CMD procedure worked perfectly but slow (overnight). Could it be use with others earlier versions, say IE-8 in XP?

I'm glad it could help.

You should be able to use at least option 1 in XP for IE8.

The command in option 2 would be different for IE8, and would need to change "11" in the command to "8".

Win 7 Professional x64 UK (Retail) SP1 & SP2

According to my past experiences IE8 especially in Windows XP this intergrades with Outlook 2003 so this to be able to demonstrate HTML content within emails.
And even Outlook 2010 this behaves identically.

In XP if IE8 gets downgraded to IE6 then Outlook office 2003 email preview this getting worst due lack of newer html code proper formatting.

About Win7 I will simply assume that MS using identical principalsí.
IE11 this will be required for Microsoft Office Outlook to run properly.

Only if you switch to Thunderbird then it might IE11 this to not be needed any more.
Personally just for compatibility purposes I do not remove IE from windows I am just not using it.
