Inland,

MSN Explorer is a 'branded' form of Internet Explorer developed by Microsoft that, according to Wikipedia, "integrates MSN and Windows Live features such as Hotmail and Messenger with a web browser" and, from what I heard years ago, is as much of a pain as AOL.
I didn't think it still existed.
Wrong again!

Gil.

I learned something new today too... It doesn't sound like anything I ever want to deal with either. Give me good old IE or Firefox or Chrome any time.

JIMMYK,

If you want a new browser, I'd suggest Opera.
Someone else might suggest Firefox, Safari or Chrome.
Internet Explorer is really behind all of them when it comes to speed as well as safety, I think.
You have to have IE on your computer if you use Windows but you sure can ignore it.

I know Opera has a web based email program you can use and I believe the others do as well.

I use WinLiveMail, an independent email program that doesn't depend on a browser and is something like the old Outlook Express.
You download it free from Microsoft which no longer includes an independant email program (OE) with Internet Explorer.
If you do this, your email comes to you, as it does for Homer6, through your ISP.

If you'd like to use Gmail, which is web based, you can install it with any browser.
I use Gmail for anything I don't want coming to me at my primary email address.

All of them, WLM, Gmail and the browsers, allow you to import your emails and contacts from the email program you use now.
Assuming you ever get into it!

Gil.

If your email account is an MSN or hotmail account - type in your own.

Some things just need to go quietly into the night... What a pain.
