My wife has an Acer One XP netbook and unfortunately Outlook Express isn't working very well any more and I think it needs reinstalled. Anyway it appears I can't download it anymore and the replacement for express only works on windows 7. Can anyone suggest a way around this or another piece of software which can replace outlook express easily and will import the settings. Many thanks!

I suggest using MS Outlook assuming you have office installed on your PC.

It comes packaged with IE6 so roll back to IE6 and you can install it from there.

try pocomail, try it free and its not expensive to buy............ BIG advantage is it doesn't use the outlook engine (most mail programs do) and therefore doesn't suffer any of the virus problems.
