9. Installing Email Clients

Microsoft Outlook, which is included in Microsoft Office, is available from the Computing Services Shop (this excludes personal student purchases).

Microsoft Outlook Express is now commonly installed on new computers. If you have a copy, check that it's a reasonably current version (ideally version 6 or later) - the version number is usually shown when you start up the program. Apart from additional features, newer versions also offer more protection against viruses and so on; however, they will require more disk-space and memory on your machine.

You can obtain or update a copy of Internet Explorer and Outlook Express via Microsoft's web site.
