[BCAB] Outlook Express question

Replying late to this thread but there is a hacked version which will work on any version of windows as far as I know but I think it's dodgy and I'd leave it alone as outlook express is quite buggy and backing up email with it is a real hastle.

Cheers

Graham

Hi Jim,

Iam intrigued as I thought Outlook Express was only available in versions of Windows up to and including XP. Are you sure it is Outlook Express you are using and not Outlook, or are you using Windows Live Mail. If you are using Windows Live Mail Jaws does say "Outlook Express message list" for some reason when you are in the inbox, but I think that's probably because  Freedom modified the original scripts used for Outlook Express and forgot to rename that screen.

Outlook Express has never had ribbons and had the old style menus unless you know something I don'tand there's a newer version, but it was originally part of Windows and Internet Explorer. I suggest you check in Help and About exactly what program you are using and then we might be able to help.
If you are in Outlook you can go to the View tab, change view button and Compact View whichI think will get you what you want if that helps.

Kind regards,

Adrian.

WOW I didn't even know there is a version of Outlook Express that runs on Windows 7. Regardless the only suggestion I can think of is to check the settings under the View menu. Call up the View menu and see how your messages are grouped. May be you want to group them by conversation? This should be a check box.

Hi List,

I asked this question on another list but didn’t receive any response. I’m running win7 jaws 16 with Outlook express as my mail program. I had it set to collapse all messages but just recently it isn’t collapsing them. The expand/collapse option on the view ribbon is unavailable so does anyone know what I need to do to get the button to be active again. I hope someone on this list can help and I will be grateful for any suggestions.
Thanks
Jim
