i have a new system which is the ultimate and although my brother printer will work, the system will lock up on start up. i have to unplug the usb on start up or the system will lock up on the dell logo screen.

configure the BIOS for the USB ports. See if another setting allows the
boot. Most likely the new system is USB 2. If the printer is more than 5
years old it most likely only supports USB 1 which might be the conflict.

Also make sure you have all the USB patches for Vista. If you are running
SP2 you should be good.

As I remember, that MFP is an older device, and might have worked with
outlook express and/or outlook. Thunderbird is also a possibility.
I gave mine away over a year ago, due to various problems--
Slow, uses too much ink at a high price, feeder misfeeds, and so forth.
