Setting up email

By HH1 ·
In trying to set up an external email account in Outlook 2000 on an IBM thinkpad running Windows 2000 I am not able to access the email properties in Outlook Tools - Services - add - external email - properties. The properties do not open and a message pops up that an error has occurred and to remove the service and reinstall it, however it never works.

Setting up email

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Setting up email

not sure if this is the exact cause of your problem, but the last time I had a similar problem with setting up an e-mail account on a portable system, I had to reboot the system and log in as an administrator before it let me do anything. Suggest you give it a go. if all else fails you can always reload Outlook 2000 and the operating system.

Over the years I have found that it is usually better to use Outlook Express than Outlook for e-mail handling.
