Do you have a centralized mail service program setup in your server?

Please be more specific. Refer me to an article or something. The documentation I have is confusing as hell and no one provides this detail which is vital. I am the administrator of a small outfit. I am it.

I could be that Outlook is trying to locate a MS Mail server i.e. post office.  This may well be because you are trying to load a service for MS Mail?

I found alot of information on the Microsoft web site, painful though it is, visit it and search the knowledge base on Outlook.

First, you need to create the MS Exchange Server in order to define it as the MS Post Office, with the addresses of the people working in you small net. Then install the Outlook.
