Guide Review

Outlook Express is very good protecting your privacy and security as compared to programs. The users can switch to text only mode if they want to get maximum security because all harmful contents are disabled by it. The user can make balance in security with fun features of Outlook Express. There is excellent support provided by Outlook for HTML emails and HTML source can be edited very easily. The use of stationery can make your emails very attractive. Outlook is unable to compose mails with replies if you want to use your emails in your emails with text indentation and reply. It can be difficult for users to use the filtering system in this program and there are no message templates as well. There are built in spam filters but filtering can be done with the help of third party tools and plug ins. There are not many advanced features in Outlook Express therefore it can not be good for heavy email users but it is simple, fast, secure and clean email client for everybody else.
