Delete Outlook Express?

Now that I've more or less got my head round MS Outlook 2010, should I now delete OE? At the moment OE is still active, though not my default email program, and seems just to be duplicating things!

What's your advice, please?

I find that Outlook Express is better than other offerings from Microsoft. It has a junk folder which it will deposit unwanted or dodgy emails in saving you from the problems you get when other programs just let them be opened or read without you giving them a second thought.

So I would keep Outlook Express and dump the others, I know I have and I am very happy at that.

i usually just get rid of the auto-sign in on my email address so its a lot more easier to do things your way

As far as I knew it came bundled with I/E so not that sure if you can delete it or not and still get I/E to work properly.

Outlook Express can be removed by going to Control Panel>Add&RemovePrograms then clicking on Add/Remove Windows Components in the left-hand column, then removing the tick beside Outlook Express.

Technically speaking it disables OE rather than removing it
