2 solutions in the above thread, and you should really be using a different email as outlook express is outdated.

@cornemuse, this is true, but I would rather just one outdated program, not 2,

have been using yahoo for years as my email, never did use outlook express

Outlook Express won’t be supported any more but it isn’t going to disappear. Still, RIGHT NOW is the time to switch email clients either to Outlook or one of the free email services like Gmail. Most services offer handy tools to import your mail and contacts from Outlook Express.
above from here

at least move to Outlook.

I manage to keep email to a minimum (for myself), I tried Thunderbird once but actually OE has allus served me well, I delete 70-80% of mail out-of-hand.
