I think that you simply have a compatability problem between Corel and OE. The ability to make programs talk to each other is kinda new for windows, so there are going to be these sorts of problems.
The only solve I can suggest is to contact Corel's support dept and see what they say about this.
OE is one of the most used "keywords" to get to this site! So it is a program with some problems I would think.
I choose to stay away from these "do it all in one" programs, or things that depend on sending information to another program. It's always flakey at best, and when you install a upgrade to one program, you may have problems with the other. It's just not a good idea when there is really no well defined standard way to do things (programming wise).
As a programmer, I know how important it is to focus on one thing at a time, when you write a "do it all" program you have too many things to consider and it becomes a monumental task to keep up with it all.
If you want life to be much simpler, keep it simple on your computer. I run Eudora for mail, and do my WP in "works". I only use the WP and spreadsheet feature of works and do not use any fancy features. Eudora light is free, and it also included PGP for privacy, you should check it out.
I also try to never upgrade unless I am forced to. Once things work for me, I just leave them alone.
On windows, the rule is to leave well enough alone. It took you many hours to get your system stable, why screw it up?
: Just installed Corel WP7 full office suite on Clone
: Pentium 150 running Win95 - 4.00.950a
: Am using Outlook express 5 as POP e-mail client and want to be able to send files directly to OE.
: Corel will only recognize MS Exchange which will not easily send to my ISP Mail server. Any ideas? TIA
