Customer Question
I recently bought a computer...
I recently bought a computer at Staples. Microsoft Home and Student is what was recommended. I searched and could not find Outlook Express. I now find out IF I had purchased the 'step up', Outlook would have been included. This was not explained. I am very frustrated. I planned on spending $500....# XXXXX and not flush#, walked out spending $1100, and no Outlook.
What will this cost me? Thanking you in advance.

HI Sandra,

Outlook is not included with the Home and Student version. However - there is a simple solution. I will give you a link to download Windows Live - which Includes Windows Live Mail. It is very much like Outlook, and won't cost you a dime!


Please click HERE and then click the blue DOWNLOAD button to get it.

Thanks,

J.

I asked an additional question, but perhaps you had left.

Will I have a bunch of new stuff to contend with? I am on heavy duty meds & retention of info is almost impossible. I will accept this help.

Thanks,

sandy

There will be some learning required, but it is not too hard and can actually be fun. Just take it easy :)

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
