Here is the Outlook Express 6.0 for Windows 7,8,10. After installation is done, the launcher is not necessary. I usually remove the automatically created shortcut and make a direct shortcut to the Outlook Express executable (C:\Program Files (x86)\Outlook Express\msimn.exe). I also recommend to run it under Win2000 and RunAsInvoker compatibility modes so to avoid the UAC prompt on each run (modern Windows releases do not have this mode in the properties dialog but it can be enabled using Microsoft Compatibility Manager).

I found this OE version online too a while ago but I wouldn't want to use it on a real computer. After all, it's kind of outdated anyway and on top of that they also had to tinker with some Windows system files that are used for secure password storage stuff in order to get their OE version to actually save the account's password. So you absolutely don't know what you get and what to expect when you really use this version of OE. Instead I customized Windows Mail a little bit, looks good enough for me and it works just fine without tinkering with security related system files and as far as I know it should also work with the latest version of Windows 10.

Well, I tried it.
1. Cannot change encoding for NNTP
2. The look is not classic (no Client Edge etc)
3. One needs to get somewhere the original .mui files.

I customized it by editing the dll files in a resource editor. I extracted the toolbar bitmap from one of the dll files and opened it in Corel Photo Paint and copied and pasted the graphics from an older version of this bitmap (from Outlook Express). I've also replaced the icons in another dll.
Unfortunately I can't tell you anything about the borders and stuff like that. Maybe running it in Compatiblity mode would help? I don't know.
