feel free to throw rotten apples at this question but i don't know much about the mail server side of things...
I am trying to install Outlook on a home machine (OS Windows XP) but I keep getting a dialogue box asking for my Exchange Server details. this could be because some time ago I tried to do a re-install (don't ask..i've had major XP problems) of Outlook and when prompted i said that i wanted to connect to exchange server (an error on my part). now i can't seen to back out of it, not matter how many XP and MS Office installs I do.
one of my mates said that you can't run Outlook without a MS Exchange server (therefore only companies will have that - it's unlikely a home user will pay Exchange license fees) and that home users only use Outlook Express.
is this true? and if so, is there a calendar/task pad for Outlook Express?
ta for any help
Check Tips for Configuring Your MS Outlook 2000 Installation [microsoft.com]
On the Customize Outlook Installation Options panel, click Customize Outlook profile and account information, and then select Corporate or Workgroup Settings or Internet Only Settings
Make sure you select the internet only option.
I would rather throw a rotten tomato at your colleague who suggested that MS Outlook is for corporates only ;)
Outlook Express doesn't offer any of the calendar functionality of Outlook.
