Using Windows XP and Outlook Express, also Mail. I would like to use only (O.E). I do not know how to delete address that I think I do not need. I am getting mixed up on which to click on. I have tried to go into Tools then Account using OE but there isn't an Account to delete the ones I think I do not need. Could you tell me please how do I find accounts in OE as it isn't under Toopls?

The link below tells you how to Uninstall live mail, so that is step one.

Before you do, make a note of your email settinfgs (or post your ISP and I will find then for you)

Note your email address and password down as well (don't post them here though)

All accounts in OE6 are Tools->Accounts. Click the 'mail' tab, if you want to see only email account(s)

If there is nothing there, then you haven't set up an account there

I have Win XP but have never had Win Mail. It's on Vista, though

I think the idea here is to get rid of Live Mail (which is truly awful to use)And set up an email account in Outlook Express.

At least I think that's what March Wind is trying to do.

I've never seen it on XP either, but the article states it will work so I guess it was offered as an optional download. (Windows Live Essentials)

Perhaps installed by mistake?

Thank you for your reply. Looks as if the prob has gone. But I do have one left to do with email. I am sending pic 9 in total at 600picels but the email keeps saying error after along time of sending. Do you think it is because there are too many pic?

Yes, try reducing the number.

My understanding of the OP was how to find the email account in OE.
My apologies if I've misunderstood

Around Again. You were right but the prob was sorted. I think I was trying to find Accounts whilst in new mail. I found it when I only had outlook up and not in new mail. Then I went onto another prob but all is well now. Thank you all for your help.
