GA Lyn, the OP only needs to look, the answers are available. I've also used Linux to save data from a defective HDD. Then just move it to your new HDD. Even run a virus scan on files before moving them.

Nonsense! E-mail is low-priority communication and has completely had its day as a collaborative working tool. Many companies these days are turning to a new form of communication that everyone needs to buy into. It's called TalkToEachOther 1.0.

This new form of communication that you mention has a number of drawbacks.

1. Syncronicity: the requirement that both parties wishing to communicate are willing to be connected simultaneously and concentrate on the spoken word of the other party, emanating from the device.

This has many undesired complications. It interferes with video gaming, requires responding immediately and serially with the correct response to the spoken question.

2. Having answers to questions to hand. Self explanatory, you need to know your job.

3. Most importantly, it removes the "excuse factor" from the possible explanations for the project being late. The, "They haven't emailed me back yet" excuse will not longer be allowed in the failure to perform arsenal.

This new concept is doomed to fail, I fear.

What a wonderful world it will be, though. :-)

It might be for you, but for me perhaps not.

I have age related deafness in the speech range and find it extremely difficult to hear what is being said in a two-way communication - almost impossible in group discussions.

Having said that, if sub-titles are available, then it might be an improvement, together with tonal inclinations and non verbal communications to help

Right now I use Email because it allows me time to think first, and there is a record.

But in response to the OP, I have suffered from lack of skill to use Outlook Express to the extent that I have great difficulty in understanding how to save messages to archives - and more so to retrieve them - particularly if from a back-up disc if windows crashed.

I use Windows Live Mail.

I have Outlook Express at work. It suffers from many shortcomings, as do most mail programs.

The one infuriating thing they all seem to share is the ability to scramble, delete or otherwise change the program that was working satisfactorily prior to the LAST UPDATE!!!

Now, when I search for a name in Outlook, I get a listing STARTING two years ago of all the emails that person has ever sent me. Formerly, before the last "improvement" I got a listing from last to first, which is always what I wanted.

Life is not fair and we do not control out own destinies.

I must agree with Lyn, even though an actual conversation is more pleasant, we also aren't always available the moment the other person is.

Email allows us to segment our day, and take the time to reply, without interrupting our productivity.

I also like the searchable email records. They can tell me they said the 21st, but the email says the 22nd. If it was verbal, they could say I forgot.

I do like a good eye to eye conversation,body language included.

The app mentioned has it's merits in some situations, but not all.

I see both sides of the communications dilemma every day.

About 1/4 of the time I need an answer, now! About half of those times I can't get it.

Then, I have to fall back on email and hope for the best.

I do archive any "official" electronic communications as well, as I have always done. Mostly to remind unresponsive vendors and associates of their past, unmet commitments.

That practice will end, at work, at the end of June when I become unemployed.

Have you compared your authentication and port settings with your ISP? I just installed Office2016 and could not send or receive Outlook emails. I called my ISP and they went through my authentication settings to make sure mine agrees with theirs. I changed mine to agree with theirs and my Outlook is working fine now.
