You will need to e-mail me at for me to actualy answer your problems but this is some of the solutions.

First you will need to get one of those free xtra starter disks which are free from like Noel Leeming and all places that sells computers.
Then when you put the disk into the disk drive WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T REGISTER OR ELSE YOU WILL GET PUT ONTO A PLAN. So that's all that I can think of but if you go to then go to xtramail then it will display user name and password but don't put in your password or username unless you are a xtra customer but if you look up on the far right up the top there should be something called help. Click on that and then got set up Outlook express so that's all that I can think of but remeber you can e-mail me for support. I am not an Xtra staff but I know what I'm talking about okay goodbye

My advice is to ditch OE and use Firebird or similar. Why open yourself up to the myriad of security holes, and a large download, when there are smaller better faster more secure open source options out there, most of which have features that will blow OE out of the water.

Its has an ugly UI anyway.

Evolution is nice, but only available for nix AFAIK?

Why is this in the CDMA forum? I didn't realize LookOut Express was CDMA based ;)

I've moved this to CDMA because of the reference to Xtra. Actually the post is not very clear at all and I'm confused about its relevance anyway.
