outlook 2007

It may be a stupid question, but what is the purpose of Outlook 2007? I have recently installed Office 2007 and am being asked to configure Outlook 2007. If I enter my Windows Mail email will I receive emails in both accounts or only when I open Outlook 2007? If I enter a different email account (not Windows Mail) which password do I enter in the Outlook configuration - is it the different email account password or the password issued by my ISP? Thanks.

Outlook is an email programme, part of MS Office.
You can configure it for use as your email if you want, and if so, will receive email to both your ISP email, and Outlook. I have configured mine for my main email programme. I'm actually on AOL, so whenever I receive an email to my AOL email, it comes through to Outlook, which I prefer to AOL.
Go to Tools, Email accounts, New, and configure from there. Try googling Outlook 2007 configure, and it may provide the solution.

you can tick an option to leave a copy of the message on your ISP email, or not, which is useful as a back-up for any emails which you unintentionally delete.

To answer your original question Windows Mail and Outlook are two different email programs, and you could receive mail in either if you wished. However, if you are happily using Windows Mail then I would suggest you don't need to worry about Outlook.

Outlook is a bit more than just e-mail as it contains calendar, contacts, e-mail and task in one program.
