I take it youre using exchange server?? Is this at the school you were talking about the other day?? If it is, why are you doing it?

That is where you enter the name of your MS Exchange server & mailbox name.
Ask the Exchange admin.
If you don't have one, then you probably want to set up an "Internet Mail account" rather than an "MS Exchange" account.

speedy- it's at home, not at school. Do you really think any school in auckland is going to bother getting outlook 2007 when 2003 looks so plain and boring?

fred- how do I do that?

Start all over again select the 1st option then tick the bottom option manually configure option. Then tick the 1st option / internet, then fill in the gaps

how do I start all over again? when I open outlook I get the 'microsoft exchange is unavailable' then 'retry' 'work offline' or 'cancel' straight away.

Tools / account settings. Then remove it. Then start all over again. Click on new

I physicaly can't. When the message comes up I can't click on anything else, CAN'T. And there is no red 'x' on the message, and if I click 'cancel' it shuts outlook.

Well get teamviewer. Send the ID and password to me in a PM. And I'll have a look. Otherwise, we'll be here forever

Fixed, it was part of a domain at a school. So, I had to kill the acct, then add the Xtra account. So, OL would open / work. You may as well delete the domain under network in my computer Jon. Its no good to you
