Outlook Express is primarily an email client and newgroup reader. It is the default email client supplied with Windows and comes free with Windows. It has all the basic facilities you expect from an email client - multiple identities, creation of folders to categorise stored emails, and automated log-in and log-out. But it is just an email client. Outlook is a full-blown contact management system. It enables you to store details on all your contacts, and to easily search and retrieve this data. It is NOT free with Windows, it is purchased as part of the Microsoft Office suite of programs. It uses the basic Outlook Express email engine as a part of its functionality. Overall it is much more powerful than the Express version. It is the sort of program a company would use to track its business contacts and their details for example. The average home user on the other hand is only likely to need to use Outlook Express, as the extra features in Outlook are all business orientated. A home user is notliekly to categorise their friends for example, but a business will categorise their contacts. Outlook will store electronic business cards, while Express cannot. ------------------------------ If you have a slower internet connection or slow computer go for Outlook express else go to the advanced version of OE with more features that is MS outlook. You can also consider going for mozilla thunderbird.

Making regular backup files of any important data you have is always a good idea. One way to back up e-mail messages is to use the Outlook AutoArchive feature. Archiving means moving messages to an archive folder at regularly scheduled intervals.

Another way to make a backup file, which is described in this article, involves exporting (copying) the contents of the message folder to a Personal Folders file (.pst) using the Import and Export Wizard. This creates the backup .pst file. You can then copy the .pst file onto a CD or DVD for safekeeping or to move the data to another computer with Outlook installed

1. Microsoft outlook is a client email application which is not inbuilt with an O.S where as outlook express is an inbuilt application with an O.S

2.POP3-110 HTTP - 80 SMTP -25 & IMAP-143

3.PST -Personal storage table, is used to store the e-mail in the computer hard drive itself. unfortunately if you move to some other computer we can copy that PST and use it on the other system.

4.File --> import and export from there we can take backup of outlook files

5.PST file contain uncomfortable format of mails which an end user doesnt know. we can read with the help of outlook connections

6.Never, but we can create rule in outlook for folders or i would say mail flow

7.it will helps you to fetch email from server. so the communication between outlook client and server would happen in a very lesser time. i would say for the quick response
