This is a simple class that can be used to generate a file to configure Microsoft Outlook Express e-mail accounts.

It generates a Windows registry definition file that specifies the addresses of the SMTP and POP3 servers to use, as well the account user name and password.

The class generates and serves the file for download, so it can be opened and installed in the desktop computer with the Outlook Express installation to be configured.

Microsoft Outlook Express is a popular e-mail client program. It is used even by many people that are not very much experienced with computers.

Some of its users would not be able to configure the program to send messages through their ISP SMTP server or access the remote POP3 mailboxes hosted by the ISP.

This class can be used to simplify that problem. It generates a Windows registry setup file that can be easily downloaded from the ISP site and installed by any user with a browser.

This way the users' e-mail accounts can be automatically setup for Outlook express without any difficulty.
