I tried the 2.7 on my wife's Windows 10 Pro Lenovo Laptop and it works perfectly. I would like to compliment you on a brilliant achievement!

You guys sure have amazing foresight. I wish you every success and a magnificent future - you deserve it.

Dealing with software suppliers over the years, I have experienced support ranging from poor to mediocre to good. In very rare cases, excellent.

However, the way you have responded to my problem and resolved it is magnificent! Your support has given me the opportunity to experience something really exceptional. In today's world filled with mediocrity, dealing with you is like a breath of fresh air.

Thank you so much for an outstanding product as well as brilliant support.

I chose OE Classic as an email client mainly because it could store my more important old emails and attachments in industry standard formats so my data is now future proofed.

Having asked for technical help only twice in the last few years, another reason has become clear. Each time OE Classic's speed of response and the quality of the advice has let me quickly fix the issue and then get on with what I was using email for.

With updates on a regular basis offering more email functionality, why would anyone who chooses their own email client download anything else?

I can recommend OE Classic.

I have never ever experienced such speedy and helpful service from any company like I did after ordering the OE Classic Pro version of this email service. I've searched and searched for an email program to replace my very outdated Windows Mail program. Nothing came close to the formatting I need for saving files to my computer like I experienced with Windows Mail.

However, I am so grateful to the team member who helped me set up my new OE Classic Pro version that I want other potential customers to know about this excellent service and the speed of responding is beyond belief. Thank you for providing this outstanding service. Now, I can save my mail files to my computer exactly like I did before with Windows Mail and know that I am using a reliable and updated email program.

I am very pleased to advise that the migration worked well without any problems. All my Outlook Express emails (some 2.62 GB of 348 DBX files and folders), all IAF settings and address book came across without any issues. Very pleased with the changeover and with what I can see so far. The look and feel of the program is like an old friend and it's nice to continue with that familiarity.

The "creators" of this version of OE6 told me several years ago, that Microsoft OE6 refuses to install on WIN7 and later because the newer DLLs in the Windows folder are no longer compatible with OE. Attempting to install OE over these DLLs (which are already open) makes Windows reject and refuse the installer. As a result, they (not Microsoft) created a new installer which installs the older DLLs locally. They made no source code changes at all, and provide no support. As a result, although OE6 does now install and run on WIN7 and later, by using local DLLs, the existing OE6 issues still remain.

Now to OEClassic. I do recall some teething hassles at the outset, which is why I reverted to OE6. However with OE6 frustrations, I finally decided to retry OEClassic, and I am really glad I did. Aside from the fact that your continued response and support is absolutely superb, the product is excellent. I now have transferred all my accounts, messages, rules, signatures and contacts from OE6 to OEClassic, and have a live full volume comparison test bed.

Results: THE OECLASSIC RESPONSE COMPARED TO THE OE6 RESPONSE IS PHENOMENAL! I never thought I would say this, but I would never go back to old OE6!

Your hard work is VERY much appreciated.
Thanks yet once again.

I installed OE Classic Pro yesterday on Windows 10 computer and imported all 17 years of OE 6 emails with large attachments, etc. seamlessly from the old XP computer. I have been using OE Classic for two days and am very satisfied. The look and feel of the interface are remarkably similar to OE 6. Thank you for an excellent email client allowing users to keep emails secure on our own hardware.

It's great to be able to use a program that just works correctly day in and day out.

It is very obvious that this program has very capable programmers who are competent.

Lastly, these old eyes of mine Thank-You for the recent update that allows me zoom in on my emails. This is a welcomed improvement.

I am so glad I purchased OE Classic Pro! When I recently acquired a new (used) computer, I struggled mightily to transfer my email (messages, contacts, everything) onto my new computer to no avail.

I reached out to OE Classic support and what a magnificent representatives of OE Classic they were! Over the course of a weekend, they promptly and very calmly responded to my panicked emails. Although they had given me succinct and comprehensible directions, I was unable to follow them properly. They (later) solved all my problems (and taught me important maintenance techniques) with outstanding knowledge, patience, humor, and kindness.

I will happily recommend OE Classic Pro because of its ease of use, but most of all because of the remarkable customer service I received today.

I can never thank you enough for providing such a great email program and for its accompanying magnificent customer service.

I have used OE Classic Pro for a year now and I can warmly recommend the email program to everyone who's in the market for a totally uncomplicated, safe and very easy to use program. The purchase price has proven to be very good value for money!

When I asked for help, I always promptly received answers. A self-inflicted user "hiccup" causing a minor error was equally promptly attended to and solved within minutes.

As I use OE Classic more, I find it maybe the best email program I have ever used, and fella, I started using email when it was just Message Board. An email program that is simple, easy to set up and easy to use is what the public wants, not a program of a million options that drives you crazy (Outlook, not Outlook Express, Express was MS's last common sense program) and OE Classic is just that, easy to use. So please keep it up.

I have a comment overall.

1. I wholeheartedly appreciate your efforts in particular. You have been more curious and consistent than the customer. Hope we would have individuals like you across the globe!
2. I was used to Outlook express and was tuned. When I came to know that XP is discontinued and the further versions of Windows do not provide any email client, I was desperate. I fortunately happened to come across the information of OE Classic. This is just the product I longed for. I am totally satisfied with the performance and features of the product.

In a nut shell, thank you OE Classic and wish all the best for the whole team.

Thank you for everything,

We were looking for a replacement for the old Outlook Express, and came across OE Classic in our search. We have been using OE Classic for a few weeks now and it's great. It's a modernized Microsoft Outlook Express, that looks nicer and works better. The program is great, and on top of that, tech support is excellent, quick and efficient. At first we thought the testimonials sounded too good to be true, but now here we are adding a new one, just like the ones we've already read.

Another happy customer,

I used Outlook Express for ages. I valued its simplicity, being balanced with features and had beautiful typography when it comes to displaying email messages. I considered and used other mail clients, such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail, MS Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Emclient, Mailbird, but they did not qualify as a replacement to Outlook Express for holding my vast email archive, for aesthetic reasons and also because with their own proprietary formats, once you have converted to one of these tools, you have to stay with it forever.

So, after Microsoft has discontinued Outlook Express, I continued to ran it inside a virtual machine in Windows XP Mode, which I set up specifically for this purpose. That worked up until now, but, unfortunately, one day the Windows simply said that the virtual machine is not usable anymore, because its has became corrupt. Thus, I was suddenly cut out from 19 years of my saved emails, saved notes and various text projects.

I was able to recover Outlook Express'es mail storage from the virtual machine, but decided not to let Microsoft close to my email from this point on anymore.

With OE Classic, I was able to import 7.5 GB of my archives and be up and running again in the course of hours. I value OE Classic for its ability to edit messages in various folders - I used it a lot in Outlook Express for taking notes, and missing of this feature in other mail clients was a turn-off. I value OE Classic for its open storage format, which serves as an assurance that the mail is not locked under one vendor. OE Classic also done great job importing and handling vast amounts of messages without any glitch.

I recommend OE Classic to everyone looking for a replacement for the original Outlook Express and its siblings (Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail) as well as just looking for a decent, capable mail client!

I have to say that I have always received immediate replies from you for any questions I have had. I can't tell you how much your service is appreciated. There's no one else who compares! I haven't seen a place on OE Classic site to report on the wonderful customer service you provide, but if there's a place, please let me know.

I don't know why anyone would use anything other than OE Classic, so uncomplicated (mostly) to those of us who aren't computer whizzes. We were kind of forced to try another email provider, in our case we chose "Gmail". Their format, as far as I am concerned, is horrible! Give me OE Classic anytime!

SO NICE to have an OE look-a-like program that we are familiar with (and so much more user friendly) than having to change to another email client that is so poorly thought out. And the support... what a breath of fresh air... to get an answer in such a timely manner! Thanks again, very much appreciated.

The latest updates to OECLASSIC are WONDERFUL!

1. I can now compose emails without "shouting" which is how people perceive an "all upper case" email.
2. I now can READ all emails much more easily without having to grab my keyboard to do the control scroll wheel action, which was difficult for me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

At a problem solving forum where users were outraged at Microsoft Mail, one thoughtful person left a link to OE Classic saying, "try this." Having spent countless, fruitless hours trying to solve problems and find features in Mail and Thunderbird, I bought the program and wished I had found it long ago. Most folks probably have at least three email accounts and will need the paid version. I can testify this is a stand-up company.

The tech support alone is worth the price and outclasses Microsoft's by far. The program's interface is well designed, and the manual adequately covers its features. Still, I emailed two questions on a Sunday, and both answers came that day. I asked if there was a short-cut to block an email address and found it is already on the to-do list. The answer contained additional, helpful detail I had not even asked for. The second question was how to change default colors for a certain aspect of the program. Windows 10 doesn't allow for that, but the technician told me how I could get around that by editing the Windows Registry, and gave me the personal settings he was using.

The program's many features, simplicity, and ease of use - were exactly what I was looking for and have already been covered by others. I'll only add that by using Thunderbird's export features (to a CSV file) and OE Classics import features, I was able to retrieve my old emails and addresses. Couldn't do that in Mail for Win 10. Thanks, OE Classics.

This is a good email (client). It installs so easily. It is easy to navigate and has an appealing looks. I like that you can increase the icon size for Create, Reply, Forward, Send/Receive etc. Especially for older folks. It looks like Outlook Express which is nice.

- It looks like O'express, BUT better!
- It is easy to use...
- Easy to install
- Great email program. Where have you been all my life!!!

The HTML type stuff is what some people live for. Especially older folks for some reason. The reason is that email is sole method of communication for many. And to be able to dress it up and have "fun" with it along the way is great. That is what the original OE had some of that, but WLM 2009 was the best in that regard, but for my brother, he likes to dabble in playing with HTML code. Just a tiny bit. Like adding moving banners, and little cartoons that move etc. That is why he loved the original OE as you could modify the source code a little. You can do it also with WM. BUT NOT WLM. Not even the 2009 version. But with OE Classic you can do that. Please do not take that away!

I love the program and have broken my addiction to Outlook Express, very freeing.

For years Outlook Express, in my opinion, was the best and easy to use and about the only one that could have folders and sub folders which I use extensively. Sadly the tyranny of Microsoft pushing us to their will made it harder and harder to keep it working. Honestly I was fearful of moving from a program I knew so well. The transition was simple and intuitive. I am only sorry I waited so long.

Your program, OE Classic offers all the good stuff from Outlook Express with none of the Big Brother stuff. Not to mention excellent and prompt technical help, try that with the big M! I will be recommending OE Classic to everyone who is fed up with all the other email programs, thanks.

After trying to wrap my head around Thunderbird for the last 3 years I just want to GET ALL THE TIME BACK I wasted on that garbage. The hours of reading up on issues, googling for fixes and endless plugins to do the most basic stuff...

OEClassic is way more than a fresh breath of air!! It's throwing off the shackles, hooray!

It works, it's rock-stable, it's pleasant to look at and best of all... it's SIMPLE!

To make things even better, it was found just in time as trying to teach a 90y/o mum a new Windows as well as a new email client (from her trusty, old XP/OE6) would've been worse than laying a noose around my neck. She took to OEC with a smile and an "Ooohhh, THIS IS NICE!! Thanks, boy!".

Which made for one hell of a great Christmas-present. Thanks to you guys. Bravo!

Sooo glad to have found OEClassic... MS just has to hang their head in shame.

I want to say how happy I am, I found your software as a OE substitute. I never did like other software including Outlook as much as OE and when I moved to Windows 10 I was so disappointed to find the terrible programs that I found.

They all seemed to fail in functionality, simplicity, clarity and ease as OE did. I was starting to think I would need to make a program myself when I found your OE Classic. I do wish you great success with it and hope well for your ventures.

Hi guys,

I just want to say a big thank you for your product. My Father, who is now over 80 and was never into PCs had a PC I had built him running XP with Outlook Express. The thing had ground to a standstill so I saved all his documents including all the OE files and made a new PC with an SSD and a fresh W7.

I was searching for something simple for him to use and found your product. I installed, purchased imported and all is good. Many thanks.

Just a quick note to say I landed on your OE Classic whilst searching for an alternative to Outlook 2016. Having spent many hours on the phone and getting nowhere I was about to give up on finding a desktop email handler. I much prefer to keep my emails locally rather than in a cloud where all sorts of things are snooped on!

Many thanks for a lovely simple program. It seems to be working beautifully, having followed your simple and complete instructions for transfer my old info to it.

I downloaded your program after downloading several others as a substitute for Windows 10 Mail. Yours is the easiest, simplest, and fastest to use. I am so glad I found your mail program. I cannot tell you enough how much better it is than any email program out there. I am able to send links, attachments, and more in my email. It is fast and user friendly. I love the 2.6 beta paid version, and am so happy that you have made this available. Thank you.

I just thought I'd let you know how pleased I am with OE Classic. I have six email accounts (including two Gmail accounts) which I use OE Classic for. Visually and otherwise the client is a pleasure to use.

I never thought that I'd be happy with another client after the demise of the original Outlook Express, but only tonight I realised that your OE Classic makes me just as pleased as having the original. I look forward to what you have in store for us in the future.

Many thanks.

Can I just say thank you - as another old dinosaur who has just reluctantly got a new computer with Windows 10, I was looking for something to replace my old faithful Outlook Express, which served me well for years. I had a quick look at Outlook and I have never seen such a pile of unnecessary stuff! Your personal customer service is wonderful and an absolute breath of fresh air.

I find that OEClasic email program is the best alternative to Outlook Express and it is so much cheaper. It is very easy to deal with. And whenever one gets some difficulties, it is so easy to send a "help" message to which one gets a very helpful answer the next day - that option Outlook does not serve. But the best feature is, when I do a backup "in and outgoing" mails every month to an external hard drive, to minimize the number on the computer, then it is possible to open and read the messages directly from the backup file. In Outlook one needs to have a special program or reinstall the mail again into Outlook. Thank you for a very good email program which I can recommend to everybody.

Hi - Thank you so much for building this app.

I've used OE6 for years the way it was NEVER intended - as a giant filing cabinet for decades of mail and needless to say I've had the expected issues due to folder size limitations and have spent who knows how many hours (and the cost of DataNumen) fixing corruptions and restoring data. I run XP/Parallels/iMac and now that I am being forced to upgrade Parallels/MacOS/Windows, I had to find a new mail app since I refuse to create a Microsoft account and the built in mail app is worse than terrible. I tried ******** on my wife's new Win10 machine thinking I would get the commercial version. What a piece of ****.

I figured I was screwed as I just couldn't find a mail app that would work the way I work. Then in another search I found your app. I'm elated.

All in all tremendous app and service. I can't say enough nice things. For me it is worth twice the money you charge. You have saved me a ton of aggravation.

I already switched my wife over from ******** - just so you know your competition. A week to get an email reply. Then 4-5 days between replies. The app was auto deleting her mail with the feature disabled. Then their only suggestion was sending them logs. And this is in Win 10 it was designed for.

I have used Outlook Express since 1998, and when I was forced to let go of Windows XP recently, I knew I was in trouble. No email client is as simple and intuitive as Outlook Express. And now it was gone... until I discovered OE Classic. Simply AMAZING! Thank you so much!!! It's like Outlook Express on steroids. Amazing support and lightning fast response to suggestions. I still smile every time I go on and realize I still have Outlook Express in my life and business. Again, thank you to the developers.

No need to reply to this! I just wanted to thank you for making an email client that is so good while using little memory. For me, it is around 18 MB which is so neat and conservative.

Some email programs I have used have been 200 MB, or even more, and some have multiple processes, all taking yet more.

It's fantastic what you have achieved for such a full-featured program, and I just wanted to let you know my appreciation.

I just wanted to say how positive our experience has been with OE Classic, and we've just upgraded to OE Classic Pro.

The main reason is how good the programme is for my severely sight impaired wife. The system is simple and fast, and we love the simple way to magnify both received emails and when writing new ones (we've christened it 'Control and roll'). The truly impressive thing is that the magnification reformats the text so none is lost from the visible pane. So many magnifiers we have used enlarge the text but half of it then drops off the side of the pane making it very difficult to use.

Add to that the simple folder system and the astonishingly quick and personal response to our queries early, it's really transformed our use of email.

Thanks so much, keep up the good work.

All the best,

I absolutely love the new incoming message rules. Now that my incoming mail is sorted into its appropriate folder, I can see at a glance which ones I need to read right away and which I can read later based on the folders they are in.

I like the feature of being able to use multiple addresses for one rule. I noticed there is also a ton of choices regarding what to do with messages. Appears to be very complete.

This is a MAJOR update and you've done an excellent job. Thanks for your work and dedication. That shows in the quality of work you produce.

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was at the level of support that you offered after I inadvertently corrupted the file structures of my various e-mail addresses using some other software, which also added numerous duplicate files making things very difficult to understand.

Thank you for sorting the mess out. That is tremendous; more than I could have hoped for and all without charge. I don't know where else you can get service like that these days. It was amazing to sit here and watch it all happen. Well done.

As a fellow independent developer, it is good to see your are continuing development, and even engaging users in feature choices! I tend to get distracted myself by day-to-day "emergencies" like hackers or client website content.

I bought the OE program for my mother rather than retrain her on Outlook 2010 or 2013. I am sure it will work well.

I'll always be grateful you were there to bail out us "Outlook Express" users when Microsoft abandoned us. You were the ONLY one! No other mail program does what your does and believe me I looked long and hard at many email programs before I decided on yours.

The sign of a good program is one you never think about. It always does what it's supposed to do. I never think about your program and that IS a complement.

Anyway, keep up the good work my friend.

You are spectacular! I cannot tell you how long I searched for a program to accomplish my goals. The download was easy and fast. The import worked very accurately: folder and emails.

Please feel free to use this as an endorsement.

As far as having "difficulties", not really. It was extremely easy to setup, even if it wasn't your full Pro Version. :)

It works as good or better than MS Outlook Express worked before they (MS) "ended" it in "Windows 7".

Thank you very much for the instructions from Vista to Windows 10. I had to do this remotely for a computer illiterate friend and the result was perfect for him.

He purchased the Pro version mostly because he was pleased but also to remove the ad.

Only wish I had found this sooner before trying Thunderbird, MailBird, etc. The others have a modern look but couldn't import existing mail or were too confusing for him.

So thank you very much. Keep up the good work!

Thank you so much for showing how to set the font and size and I look forward to seeing the font color added soon also. You have no idea how much I missed the original Outlook Express. I put off buying a new computer because of that one thing. When my XP died just short of 8 years of age, I was despondent. I thought I'd have trouble with my new Windows 10 computer, but other than not having OE, I'm doing well with it. And now, your OEClassic has made me very happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thanks for the speedy reply to my questions. Apologies for my delayed reply.

As soon as I get the address booking structured to my liking I will upgrade to the Pro version (and am already recommending your product to others).

Can I also take this opportunity to say that, although I've only known about your company for a few days, I am hugely impressed by the product and especially with the clarity and comprehensiveness of support you are giving me. I deal with many support centres on behalf of my 'silver generation' friends and I have never seen the detailed step by step easy to follow instructions which you have set out.

Many thanks.

I just built a new machine (bought the parts and OS a couple of years ago) and had been concerned about the switch to W7 because I use Outlook Express extensively in XP and was aware that it was no longer available.

After a bit of research and considering the various alternatives like Windows Live Mail and Thunderbird, I decided to try OE Classic Pro and am very happy with your software - it was obviously designed around the old Outlook Express but without some of the limitations of that old program.

No learning curve and all the powerful features (such as hierarchical folders for filing my emails, and Identities).

Great Job OE Classic!!!

I count myself as very fortunate that I decided to try your product.

Thanks very much for your help, and again - great job on OE Classic - you can be proud of what you have done here - hopefully the public catches on and you sell lots of these.

You can be assured that I will be passing the word to all the people I know who might be interested (although most I know seem to like Outlook - too heavy weight for my taste).

Thanks a bunch. One thing that I love about your replies is the amount of detail information you provide. Believe me this is a huge help to your customers. I love OE Classic! Much more stable... and much better... than Windows Live Mail.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10. OE Classic works GREAT!

As for upgrade download... got it! The $25 for OE was the best $25 I have ever spent on software. Worth much more.

Thanks again for very quick reply.

Thank you for your quick response. This is truly a great program. I always loved Outlook Express because of the uncluttered interface and the ability to have all my email come into one program. This program accomplishes that and more. I would recommend the program to anyone that doesn't want to have to check and write email on webmail accounts.

Keep up the great work. The market really needed this program. I was running XP on a separate machine as well as a Virtual XP machine under windows 7 just to keep Outlook Express and multiple years of email history, now I don't have to deal with opening XP to get and read my email. Life is much simpler. I have not converted entirely to Windows 10 and bypassed Windows 8. Windows 10 looks 100% better but am waiting until I have had the chance to work with it on one computer before converting completely. However, it's a big comfort to know that I can run Outlook Express Classic on the new platform. I have never been a fan of Windows Mail or Live Mail. This is a far better alternative.

Have to admit my POV is from the days before Gmail, Hotmail (before it became Outlook.com and what genius has two products with the same name to confuse customers), and webmail in general: except for certain specific circumstances (even the 'webmail version' of email offered by AT&T which is fostered on the Yahoo email servers does not qualify) webmail is slower, format are poorer/less rich/relatively inflexible, and so on -- which is why I believe why your product satisfied an 'existing niche' and found customers -- I used all of the Microsoft mail and email clients the Outlooks and Exchanges, and while they were all on older slower computers Outlook Express, and now OE Classic just outperforms with better, tighter code.

Had customer who's staff was really comfortable with Outlook Express. They hated online email software.

We installed one workstation today with OE Classic Pro. Had a little trepidation setting up the email server parameters, but it worked almost immediately. In just a few additional minutes we were also able to install their Contacts and emails from the older OE.

It works wonderfully. Everyone else in the office wanted the same. Just purchased three more copies.

Thanks you for a wonderful product!

Greetings from Southern Oregon,

Installed your software today and I must say I was pleasantly surprised.

The installation was flawless, importing from both Outlook Express and Windows Live Mail was smooth and the user interface is very friendly.

I looked at Thunderbird and a few others before I came across OE Classic Pro and I'm extremely satisfied.

It is a pleasure to use such a well thought-out and designed program that "JUST WORKS" after the easy installation.

Thank you for solving my email problems once and for all.

Firstly, I'd like to tell you that I am utterly amazed at the outstanding effort you are putting in to help me resolve this issue. In this day and age it simply does not usually happen. The wonderfully kind and helpful responses I've had from you and the speed with which you've replied is more like the good 'old fashioned' service that we all used to experience.

You have nothing tangible to gain from doing this because I've already paid and bought the program from you - (not that my 20.00 odd is going to help you retire to a villa in the sunshine). What you are trying to do is really lovely. Quite unexpected. And very, very welcome. Thank you!

Thank you

I just want to put on record my thanks for all the help you have given me since I started using OE classic. Not that the program itself is any sort of problem, but my upgrade from Windows XP to Win7 was fraught with problems and when OE classic got caught up in the cobwebs you sorted it all out with alacrity and impressive expertise. I have nothing but admiration for the way that OE has been launched as a stable and usable program, to which the promised updates are gradually being added. It is already a better program that Outlook Express ever was, easier to use than many of its competitors yet still rich in features. I am so glad that I found it and am not suffering with using the alternatives. I would say to anyone using OE that the support received is more than worth the cost of the Pro version.

I would like to thank you for your quick response to my initial enquiry and to congratulate you on such a fine product. After testing the free version I could see it was good, but it was a wise move to quickly upgrade to the Pro version to get rid of the advertising built into outgoing emails... and so well worth it.

When my old Windows XP crashed for the final time I was devastated about the loss of some 15 years of emails in DBX files. I was forced to move to a new PC running Windows 7 (preferred choice for serious business, as opposed to Windows 8). And I couldn't find any email programs that matched the really helpful file organisation and simple functionality that Outlook Express once offered: great for nested folders and a logical email organisation. Was there any hope of getting my old files back? I found a program which said it could read them but I was unimpressed when I tried it out. So then I tried OE Classic.

OE Classic works just like the original Outlook Express - actually, much better, without some of the quirks. I didn't really expect to be able to recover my old emails because they had not recently been compacted and there were so many. However, I imported them to a new folder and... 3 hours later there they all were! Then I compacted them; better late than never!

What a fantastic product. It may not offer spam filtering (yet) but there are workarounds for that with its POP3 capability and the suggestions offered by the OE Classic team. So if you are stuck because you've lost old Outlook Express files this has to be your best solution.

Best wishes,

I love the program. I have been wanting something like this for a long time. Thank you for making it. My husband will be buying one too!

Thank you for your quick reply to my enquiry earlier today.

I confess that had I realised the address function was enabled via FILE even in the basic version, and printing enabled via right click, I probably wouldn't have bought the Pro version. However, I'm now glad that I have contributed to your business by buying the Pro version as I love the simple, clear appearance of OE and am glad to be encouraging you in this endeavour.

I was most annoyed when I bought a new computer about a year ago with Windows 7 loaded (I previously had XP) to find that Outlook Express had been discontinued some while ago and the only free Microsoft option was Live Messenger. I can't stand all the complicated jumble of bells and whistles and social networking paraphernalia in that program and the unnecessary disc space it uses so I have used Thunderbird for the past year. Now however, I have had to change service providers to BT Internet, and in spite of loading the correct settings, Thunderbird works only intermittently in retrieving and sending email using my new email address via BT Internet. I suspect the fault is with BT rather than Thunderbird, but BT technical help only supports Microsoft programs so I was unable to obtain any help from them.

Your OE program has been functioning perfectly since I downloaded the non-Pro version this morning, and was more simple to set up than Thunderbird - in fact, it took only a few seconds to input the settings once it was downloaded! So keep up the good work.

Thank you very much for taking the time to explain so clearly about the word wrapping and for implementing the 80 column auto-wrap in this version. It is most interesting for me to see how you are building and adding to OE Classic.

Yesterday I was experimenting with window size and discovered the temporary fix you mention of making the window narrower, so that is what I'll do until new version is released.

I just love the clear, simple appearance of OE Classic and I look forward to seeing the various new additions and beyond. OE Classic is a masterpiece in the making!

Best wishes,

Have updated my demo to Pro on my old XP machine and copied the messages and accounts across... absolutely just what I was looking for... next transfer everything to the new Win7 machines.....

Very pleased with the program and will see if some of the other people I support are interested in changing to it.... I suspect they will for sure.

All the best,
Regards

I was overjoyed to find a version of Outlook Express for Windows 8. I always found it nicer and an easier way to use email than Hotmail or Orange Webmail.

Fantastic speed on a topic message... and on a Sunday evening - now that is real support that too many other companies just don't do any more. I give you 5 Stars!

And being 100% on the spot of what I needed and honest that OE Classic is still growing and that feature is still being worked out - 5 more Stars!

One more Q? ... where is the Donate Button, good growing companies like you are building can use all the support in return to help you grow.

Thank you

I'd like to say that OE Classic is the best email client for Windows 7 that I have come across. Very much like the old Outlook Express with none of the problems I have encountered with Windows Live Mail such as repeated downloads of messages I have already received and deleted and error messages popping up when I try to open an email or delete it.

Congratulations to your programmers for producing it and a free version too!

Best regards

HUGE kudos and mad love for making this awesome, and in my opinion the best email client available by far. Keep up the good work.

I want you to know I like this email client!!! I have been looking for it ever since I had to leave Windows XP. I wish all email clients were as easy to use as this one.

I've had Windows 7 for three years now, the only email program that I could find that I liked was Outlook, however it was at times a pain. A few weeks ago in the Windows Secrets forum a member mentioned your mail program. Of all the programs I've tried it's the best by far.

Many thanks,

I should add that I originally tried Windows Live Mail. I couldn't get any of the messages to transfer properly and the address book was completely reformatted... what a pain! It will be so nice to have a genuine replacement for my old faithful OE.

I would like to report to you that OE Classic is working very well. I really do appreciate all the hard work you all have done on providing this application to the Outlook Express 6 community. You have saved us from the other junk email applications that are cumbersome and difficult to use. This is a great application and I look forward to using this for a very long time.

Tonight, I downloaded the program and I am pleased beyond words! What a great program that kept the feel of OE6 and added some wonderful improvements! Thank you!

You are great! Most sites don't give a **** and won't communicate. MS are total ********. OE Classic is an excellent program in its simplicity.

The problem today is that the geeks get to design the background details of a program and the interface as well. They are out of touch with reality. The controls on cars are a good example when you are required to flip through a menus to operate the volume or change a station on the radio (as you smash into the rear of the car in front of you). The interface must be designed first by normal humans and then the geeks should be told to make it work.

Much appreciated for you honesty and support.

No Question! Just to thank you for your excellent email programme. I was dreading upgrading from Windows XP as I knew Outlook Express was going. OE Classic is an ideal replacement and probably better than the original.

Thank you soooo much for your help. I am now up and running and have everything back to normal.

I want to tell you that I have never received so much tech help anywhere else as I receive from you.

I went from XP to 8.1, the Windows Mail app ***** so much and Microsoft was NO help in helping me find something better... maybe $100 for Outlook 2013.

This is what I wanted, this took my XP emails and what was in the **** Windows Mail and it was sooooooo EZ!!!

Thank you!
Thank you!
Thank you!

Thank you very much for replying to my email.

I have now purchased OE Classic Pro.

Using the extremely useful, detailed information contained within your email, coupled with your outstanding online manual.

I have managed very successfully to install OE Classic Pro. Copy my considerable number of files / folders and Address Book from Outlook Express to OE Classic Pro. And finally to migrate OE Classic Pro to my swanky new laptop. As a result, I can now condemn my creaky old Desktop PC to the local re-cycling centre.

I am a very happy chap and I consider OE Classic Pro to be wonderful value for money.
