Tips to set-up Microsoft Outlook Express
Microsoft Outlook Express should not be allowed to automatically download the messages that are present in Hotmail ‘Junk mail’ folder. Synchronization of headers should only be done since this folder contains a collection of all spam caught by the filter. Also make sure that it is compatible with the Operating System being used and the user name and password should be correctly typed in.
When e-mail and data are backed up in Microsoft Outlook Express, make sure that useful software is used to serve the process. Also ensure that the Microsoft Outlook is closed while saving Outlook.pst files so that the files will not be copied. E-mails can be made accessible from a single computer in a simple way by making use of identities in Microsoft Outlook Express. While setting up Microsoft Outlook Express, keep in mind not to check the ‘Log on using Secure Password Authentication’ box.
