I have just loaded Office 2000 on to my new XP Professional system. On loading Outlook I get the following.... "Unable to open your default e-mail folders. Outlook coult not start becase a location to send and receive mail could not be found. To add a location, such as a personal folder file, double-click the Mail icon in Windows Control Panel" ....and there's the problem - there is no Mail icon in XP's Control Panel from what I can see. Is it via some convoluted route?
I have a mail icon in my control panel. Hovering over it brings up "Microsoft Outlook Profiles" and clicking on it brings up a box named "Internet Accounts" with nothing in it. As far as I remember it was always there.
Go to Control Panel, select classic view, this will revert you back to old windows 9X settings and you will see the mail icon there set up the email account from the email wizards. then revert to category view
You are more than welcome, i was on site for the first time adding some praise for Logitech and decided to have a look about. I am an IT manager looking after 14 sites and 274 users, we have been using XP for a while and it was an early problem we came across. if you get any other problems give me a shout.
