    I get this message "cannot start microsoft outlook. Outlook requires microsoft outlook express 4.01 or greater. You can install outlook express by running IE5setup.exe from the IE5 folder located on your CD or through the windows update website. " I tried my cd. That did not work. I checked with microsoft chat and they wanted to sell me the latest office , which I do not need. Is it possible to get my outlook working again?

    IE5 does not even work on Windows10. Outlook Express was killed with Windows XP and that was almost 4 years ago...
    A good question is though, what version of office package (which usually includes outlook) do you have??
