can anyone tell me what the difference between Outlook Express and Microsoft
Outlook is?

I am trying to sync my email (contacts etc.) with a new Palm Treo phone and
I think I may need M.O. instead of O.E., but I am not sure what the
difference is or how to fix it!

Thanks!

Outlook is not a newsreader - you need Outlook Express to continue to read
these newsgroups.

OE is a mail and newsgroup reader and writer. Periode!

Outlook is a mail reader and writer with an advanced PIM, i.e. a Personal
Information Manager.
You know a program where you keep an close eye on you contacts, calendar,
tasks and meetings and so forth and so on...
As a matter of fact actually :-)

The Treo syncs with Outlook which is a different program from Outlook
Express. It can be purchased seperately or with Microsoft Office. Outlook is
a PIM as well as an email program. You can use the Palm Desktop instead of
Outlook to manage appointments etc. on your pc.

when you launch the newsreader, it actually opens in an Outlook Express
