Send/recieve email using Outlook Express?

P: n/a
I built a nifty little SPAM killer with Access linking into Outlook
while I was at work the other day (boring day, loads of time to
kill...) but now I'd like to use it at home where we use Outlook
Express.

The big problem seems to be this missing reference:
microsoft outlook 11.0 object library

Is there anything similar for Outlook Express? I know that would just
be WAAY to easy and Microsoft tends to make things difficult, but I'm
just hoping there's a simple solution (aside from upgrading to Outlook
at home).

This

is probably not what you require as it's one way only (send). But it
might give you an idea.

I suggest ( or I would have a few months ago) using Thunderbird at
home. It has a very effective trainable spam filter.

Today, I REALLY suggest using GMail's web mail. It's quite
outstanding, giving almost unlimited storage, and allowing messages to
be labelled multiple times. The multiple labelling allows one to
classify a message in more than one way; this is a big move up, in my
opinion, form the older practice of storing a message in just one
folder, or having to make multiple copies of it. So I might classify
and be able to find the same message under Geocaching, Brother and
Thanskgiving. Of course, GMail's availabiliy anywhere there's a
computer with an Internet connection is pretty nice too.

Did I mention there is a fast, simple and so far errorless utility for
uploading files to the five or so gig GMail storage, so that you can
save crucial (or any other you want) files in that storage as if you
had e-mailed them to yourself, but it's actually done with the
convenience of drag-n-drop.

If I weren't doing business and didn't have a bunch (273?) of legacy
email addresses I would use just my GMail. Oh wait, GMail allows me to
access five of those accounts directly and painlessly from it.

In the year or so I've used GMail it has yet to make a Spam mistake.

I returned reluctantly to Outlook (2007) recently but it's mainly due
to business concerns and Palm synching.
