Hello,

I am trying to setup a standalone installation of MS Outlook 2003, but every time the program opens it attempts to connect to the Exchange server on the computer's old network.

It says it the exchange server is unavailable and asks if I want to work offline, then it opens the computer's system files in the folder list.

How can I set Outlook up as a standalone version?

You need to set another profile in Outlook by going to mail in the control panel.  Also when setting up the new profile make sure the option is not set to try and open the Exchange profile.  Setting a new profile you will have the option of either setting a exchange account or a pop3 account.
