Microsoft Outlook Express is an e-mail service that allows users to store their e-mail data to their own personal hard disk. E-mail access is restricted to one computer only using the Outlook Express basic service. Some software programs can be used that contain applications that will allow you to access your e-mail from another computer. The easiest way to access your Outlook Express e-mail is to set up a web-based e-mail account and link your Outlook Express mailbox to it. This way you can access your personal e-mail from any computer at any location.
