I have a previous computer that is a Compaq Presario, with an outlook express, that I use to log into my emails.

I then bought recently a new Toshiba Laptop and the outlook express on the new laptop did not find my email.

May I know what is the equivalent to the application Outlook Express on a Toshiba Laptop?

Hello Moose,

I have read your concern regarding Outlook Express. You are having problems on how to open emails thru Outlook Express in your new Toshiba Laptop and wanted to find an equivalent program that will run on the Toshiba. Is it right?

Actually, it won’t matter on the model of your computer but rather to the operating system that you currently use.In this scenario, Compaq running Windows Vista has a standard requirement of programs just like the others. In Toshiba running Windows Vista, the programs you are using on others may not seem to run properly here but you see, there are equivalent programs for each. In Compaq, you open emails via Outlook Express but in Toshiba, you will be using Windows Mail. The functionalities were still the same. The only difference is the name.

I hope I am on the right track of understanding your concern and give you a hand to fix the problem. I hope this information is of good help.

Good Luck!

Regards,

Mali

The Outlook Express on both computers is the same application. They just probably differ in version and which one is older and newer but it should work with your emails. You just have to log in your new computer to your email account correctly. The email client will not fetch your emails if you don’t set it up correctly.

If you want to use an email client such as Microsoft Office Outlook or Outlook Express, you need to get your email account’s correct IMAP or POP settings. For Gmail, here are the correct IMAP and POP settings. For IMAP settings:

  • Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server – imap.gmail.com
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Port: 993
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server – smtp.gmail.com
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Requires TLS: Yes (if available)
    • Requires Authentication: Yes
    • Port for SSL: 465
    • Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587

For POP settings:

  • Incoming Mail (POP) Server – pop.gmail.com
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Port: 995
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server – smtp.gmail.com
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Requires TLS: Yes (if available)
    • Requires Authentication: Yes
    • Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
  • Server timeouts – Greater than 1 minute (5 is recommended)

In Gmail, you have to enable IMAP or POP first on your Gmail account before you can use an email client like Microsoft Office Outlook. To enable IMAP or POP on your email account, open your web browser and log in to your Gmail account. Next, click the gear icon on the upper right corner of the screen then select “Settings.”

In “Settings” screen, go to “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab then enable the appropriate settings. If you want to use IMAP, in “IMAP Access,” select “Enable IMAP” then click “Save Changes” at the bottom. If you want to use POP, in “POP Download,” select “Enable POP for all mail” then click “Save Changes.” For Yahoo, see the following:

For IMAP:

  • Incoming mail server:
    • Server – imap.mail.yahoo.com
    • Port – 993
    • Requires SSL – Yes
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP):
    • Server – smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    • Port – 465 or 587
    • Requires SSL – Yes
    • Requires authentication – Yes

For POP:

  • Incoming mail server:
    • Server – pop.mail.yahoo.com
    • Port – 995
    • Requires SSL – Yes
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP):
    • Server – smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    • Port – 465 or 587
    • Requires SSL – Yes
    • Requires TLS – Yes (if available)
    • Requires authentication – Yes
