  1. guidance running legacy products "Outlook Express" and "Genie Backup"


    I have a Seagate eSATA external hard drive that contains data from several
    years ago. To access the data under Windows 10, I will need to obtain current
    versions of two "legacy" software products: 1 Outlook ExpressOE; 2 Genie
    BackupGBM. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Windows 10 versions of
    both products are available.

    The OE data is stored in GBM files. Once I restore the OE data, I will need
    to be able to read it into an OE session. So, after that rather lengthy
    preamble, here's the crux of my question:

    ***What is necessary for me to open an OE account? I'm using an email client
    called Thunderbird. The ISP is Spectrum. Ultimately, I'll probably need to
    contact the vendors of both of those products, but I thought it might help
    to get an opinion and guidance here first.

    Thanks. SweetTasha

    How to install outlook express on windows xp with explorer 8?

    This was going to be my suggestion as well. I just wasn't sure if it worked with XP. It is definitely way better than Outlook Express, and I actually prefer it to regular Outlook as well.

  3. I'm using dinosaur email-client in the form of Outlook Express 6.0

    Follow the instructions below:

    1. Shut down Outlook Express
    2. Click [Start]
    3. Select Find
    4. Select Files or Folders
    5. Enter the name of the corrupt folder. For example, inbox.dbx
    6. Click [Search]
    7. When search has found the folder, right-click on it and select rename
    8. Call it inbox.old (where inbox is the original folder name)


    When you restart Outlook Express, a new folder will be created. You will need to repeat the above steps for each folder that is corrupted. The folders used by Outlook Express are called:

    • inbox.dbx
    • outbox.dbx
    • sent*items.dbx
    • deleted*items.dbx
    • drafts.dbx
    In case nothing works you may take a look at
    Outlook Express Online Service
    - it was specially created for any devices like phones, tablets, and etc.

    Genie Media Server

    Does anyone know the product code for Genie Media Server? I'm trying to uninstall it ... but it's not on my Programs and Features list. The Fixit utility asks me for the product number.
