What is OE?

Dear Computer Lady,

I’m very new to your newsletter (just subscribed today). What does “OE” mean?



Dear Molly,

Thank you for the reminder that I should always try to explain abbreviations on my website!

OE stands for Outlook Express.

Outlook Express is the email program that came with Windows XP and earlier versions of Windows.

Windows Vista and Windows 7 do not have Outlook Express. Instead, they use a newer program called either “Windows Mail”. or more recently, “Windows Live Mail”. Outlook Express will not work with Windows Vista or Windows 7.
