I've used Outlook Express for my main email app almost my whole internet lifetime. I know regular Outlook is more powerful and has more options. (At least I've heard that.)

My question for all you fine folks is...what are the pros and cons of switching over from OE to Outlook? As far as my current email address book, settings, block list...they should all transfer over with no problems, right?

Thanks for your input.

Hi spiritcloud.
What you've heard is basicly correct. OE is just a very stripped down version of Outlook.
Take a look at this article for the differences.
You can import your address book and mail account settings from OE to Outlook.
You won't be able to import your blocked senders list.
