MSN Vs. Outlook

Monday, September 5th, 2016 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help, Quick Tips

A reader had a question about MSN email vs. Outlook. “I’m an user. I have my e-mail sites stacked, one below the other. Does Outlook have that capability too? If so, how?”

I’m not precisely sure what you mean here. But let me try to answer your question. email and email are exactly the same things. So you’ll find the same capabilities because it’s the same program.


If by having your email sites stacked, you mean that you have mail from various addresses forwarded to your address, that would be unchanged if you switched to an address. If by Outlook, you’re talking about using the Outlook e-mail client or the Microsoft Mail app in Windows  8.1 or 10, either will allow you to receive email from multiple email accounts.

    Can I get recommendations for e-mail clients? Years ago I tried Outlook or Outlook Express. On 1st use, it wiped all emails from the server BEFORE I had the option to keep emails on the server. Big problem if important emails are deleted from server if I need to access them from another computer. 2nd problem was if I wanted to delete junk and read mails, I had to delete from the Client AND server (2 lengthy processes). I do want to save emails of interest to my primary computer (Windows 7) AND IN PARTICULAR if the server permanently crashed without thorough backup. What are good clients that would prevent the mentioned problems/difficulties??

    Hi Cynthia, I’m a longtime Outlook user and love the program although it can be awkward at times. I currently am almost at capacity on my 6th .pst data file and important attachments that extend back for many years. My current setup is Office Professional 2010, v. 14.0.7172.5000 (32-bit) on a Windows 10 (64-bit) computer I have not gone to or because I’m not comfortable with the security. Am I incorrect when I think that stores my email, important attachments, etc., and places files on the cloud with these new options vs. my dependable Outlook program that, I think, pulls everything off the server and the files (emails) are totally within my possession and I can back them up as pst data files? Maybe I’m old fashioned but I don’t trust the cloud or any external storage anywhere. Sorry, but I hate browser-type email, again I lack some trust in security. I (we) would appreciate greatly some elaboration on your reply in WorldStart Tech Tips 2016-09-06. I think many people don’t fully understand the cloud vs. local storage. Further, I’d appreciate one of your excellent tips regarding sharing, not sharing, synced, and total privacy–maybe even a full article. I don’t want my email and all my private stuff synced with my smart phone, my iPad, my family’s various machines, and who knows where? Thanks for you very helpful suggestions, words of wisdom, and information.
