This is probably a slam-dunk for several of you experts, so here goes:
I have Office 2000 on a Win98 computer at home.  I have used it to retrieve email from my ISP, and I still want to do that.

Now, however, I ALSO want to dial in to my new employer's network and use Outlook to get to my office email and calendar.

I was advised to create another Outlook profile with Exchange server as a service and the Outlook Address Book.  Um-mm-m-m-m, where and how do I do that?  I seem to remember being asked in the Office 2K install drill whether I was using it in a stand-alone configuration or as part of a network.

I'm pretty comfortable with end-user applications, but this network stuff is like speaking Martian, so please be as specific as possible.  Thanks for your help.

Sounds like you might be configure in Internet Mail Only mode.  (You will have a Tools > Accounts rather that Tools > Services.)  Anyway, to take advantage of your corporate server you will need to reconfigure the mail support by selecting tools > options > mail delivery > reconfigure mail support.  Have the CD handy because it will ask for it.

Oh... you might want to check out www.slipstick.com/outlook/choosingmode.htm for differences between modes and general info.

Thanks, Neo.  Once you led me to the starting point, I was able to find everything else I needed.  Nice to have the answer so quickly also.
