Can we use Outlook Express as an email client nowadays?

I have not used it but I have been able to use outlook 2002 last year on test for email.

If you use provider like GMAIL or Posteo or Yahoo or some other that allows IMAP you need to do following.

Make sure you enabled TLS 1.2 in internet explorer settings (you need to have TLS 1.2 patches installed).

Then whatever provider you are using enable "app password" or "insecure login" option if yahoo or gmail and make sure IMAP support is enabled on any provider.

Then add new account and configure it with following (in example of gmail)

Arriving mail server settings:

Type: IMAP

Address: imap.gmail.com

port: 993

Security: SSL / TLS

Username: full email address

Password: Gmail password/app password (if 2fa)

Outgoing (SMTP) server settings:

Server: smtp.gmail.com

Port: 465

Security: SSL / TLS or SSL if tls is not available

Username: full email address

Password: Gmail password/app password (if 2fa)

I managed to do that thing, but I used POP3 instead of IMAP. I used Windows mail. I just needed to allow the access, cause it is detected as an insecure app.
