Outlook Express is an offline EMail client. It allows you to download your
emails from the mail server and read them offline. It allows you to compose your
mail offline too. It allows for setting up multiple accounts, e.g. if you have a
mail account at yahoo, one at hotmail and one at your local provider, you can
operate all of them from Outlook Express. Outlook Express is a
part of the Internet Explorer package.
