How do I get Outlook to work with Internet Explorer?  I use Netscape and can sent/receive mail fine with its Messenger but would like to use Outlook with Explorer.  My Internet mail properties are Ok but I get an error: "unable to load default mail folders.  Unexpected error, MAPI unable to load information service Mspst.dll."  When given the choice to use the default file system folders, the program brings me into My Computer.

Are you on a network ? If you are the chances are you would be logging on to a server probably an NT one , therefore NT Login ?

When you loaded Internet Exployer did you load Outlook Express?

If you did, you will need to re-load Outlook 97...

If you have not done so already, I would download or buy Outlook 98... It is a much better product.

Mcix,

Thanks for the help.  Removing Outlook Express and reloading Outlook 97 got rid of the before mentioned error and let me get into Outlook.  But I still can NOT receive/send mail. Shouldn't I get the same mail as I do with Netscape's Communicator? Also can one bvuy Outlook 98 without getting the Office 98 suite?

Markgray,

thanks for the comment but I am NOT on a network of any kind so therefore no NT login.
