It's a nice little utility and it does work correctly (a bit pricey though). What I miss as a feature is a possibility to set up an automatic scheduled backup.

Wanted to tell you my experience. Downloading etc was good. The other day I was just "playing" with the program for the first time and backed up all my e-mail. The next day I accidently hit the delete key after a "select all" for the preview pane rather than the message body. I was so upset. Then later in the day I remembered that maybe I had a backup. AND I DID !!! It was wonderful ! Thank you so much ! I will never be without this program again.

One of the great things about using Outlook Express is all of the great third party support for it, including this one! Nor have I ever had a security problem with OE either. And I started when v4 was released. Real tech savvy people could use anything anyway! It is the ones that isn't are the ones that have to worry. ;) -- BillW50

OK - good idea, but Outlook Express is dead, obsolete, etc. Does it support Microsoft Office Outlook? What about Windows Mail in Vista, or Windows Live Mail Desktop, which replaces Outlook Express. Is it supported.

This piece of software is history. Not interested unless it supports Live Mail Desktop.

I've been using OE for almost 10 years (though I've tried others) and I have never -- not a single time -- had any problem with security, despite heavy daily use. Most people get into trouble because they act foolishly, like not updating their system, or opening attachments. There are the "zero-day" exploits but they too typically require the recepient to open an attachment or follow a link. But by all means, if you can't stop yourself from doing stupid things, then OE is not for you.

Continuing from #31: it's weird anyone would want to use OE.

It's not that this giveaway is bad - I'm sure for those who do use OE find it very useful but Thunderbird has so many more useful features: working junk mail filter, free spell checker, extensions, ===>security

Thank you GOTD. This is not a program that I will use, as I, too, stopped using Outlook Express many years ago. While I don’t find this software to be useful (for me), I still appreciate your (GOTD) hard work and generosity in allowing me (and so many others) the opportunity to take advantage of free software.

Thank you again, GOTD. (From # 22)


I agree with this answer 100%.Thank you.

OK, so maybe I should be using Mozilla Thunderbird, but I'm not. I'm used to OE and old habits die hard, and seeing as how AVG (which has never let me down) scans my incoming mail anyway, I don't feel "that" vulnerable with Outlook Express.

What has always irked me about the damn thing is inability to share OE contents between two computers (my laptop in the kitchen, my PC in the top floor study, several bloody flights of stairs distant). I know it can be done manually. I also know I did it once and mangled it.

So as one of the great unwashed masses generously referred to above, here's another vote of thanks to, and for, GOTD. And for this latest software. Way to go, guys!

I too use Thunderbird (U3 Edition) This software serves no real purpose except for in a business enviroment. It might be free but it is by far the most un-useful giveaway I have seen yet.

Unfortunately, any person with a sense of computer security would have stopped using Outlook Express AGES ago and would have ditched it for Mozilla Thunderbird.

Just downloaded this program and did the backup. Very easy to use. It is a great application for me as I maintain two homes with a desktop in each so will be able to easily backup and restore files from one computer to the other. Will be buying the version when I return to my other home so it will work.

matt, your smarter than most for not using OE, but you are in the 1% that is tech savvy enough to know. Most of the unwashed masses know no better and never will. For them this is a great product.

Good program - for the complainers - what don't you understand about the word "FREE"? If you are paying for it and don't like it, complain about it, if you're not paying for it- say "no thank you" and move on. This is a great site. I find some of the freebies to be be great, some of them to be useful, some to be interesting & some I'm not interested in - but all of them are FREE - so thank you GOTD.

I'm already backing up all mail (and other files as well) using that backup-program that was on GOTD a while ago. Having a program to take care just of mail seems kind of waste-ish. But maybe it has some features or something making it worth it for some, but I won't try it.

Remember kids, if you use free software with open formats like Thunderbird, people won't need to spend hours looking into the data format they have to back up (OE mailboxes) and therefore won't expect payment for the privilege.

I've seen this many times - commercial software grows a commercial ecosystem around it. Free software means people will create free utilities.

Matt, I also use other email programs and I keep coming back to Outlook Express. It is the best for me (and probably for millions of others). And as far as that computer security scare stuff, that is only true if you don't have the latest security updates. And if you don't bother, your anti-virus will protect you anyway.

P.S. This is a must have if you use Outlook Express. Thanks again!

Speak for yourself Draykon, this is an extremely useful piece of software for my mail client. Thank you yet again 'GOTD' team. Also a large proportion of recent giveaways have been fantastic. Unfortunately there's alway some out there in cyber space who only see as far as the end of their nose and dont cosider the whole community. If you care to look back on the user ratings; for the first three weeks there were hardly anyone voting, which would have given a false impression of user ratings, for example only 2 people gave user ratings early in November, and it wasn't until four weeks into the project onwards that the user ratings became more and more reliable. In fact if you look at the figures the ratings have improved dramatically since those first few weeks. Apart from one piece of software cute organiser and IErescuer both early December every other software package was well over 50% and in the last 2 weeks is been significantly better than 80% mainly in the 90's, with only the 2 Christmas screensavers falling below 80%. I would say on the stats that the givaways have improved significantly, based on the user ratings and later qualitatively with the comments, since the first month, especially as before early December the giveaways were a mix of approximately 50% game and 50% utility. Now we get both every day. I hope that clarifies things for you Draykon. No disrespect intended.

@Daniel:
You need to run the program activate.exe This activates the full version ;)

PS: I've neither rated the software good or bad.
