I am running XP and have been using Outlook Express. Have loaded Outlook2k and when I go to open it, It will prompt me with a small window that says "Microsoft Mail" at the top and below that it ask for 3 pieces of information.

My email and domain are being hosted by a pop3 provider.

    Hi dj4h,

    Are you logged on to a domain or just standalone PC ?

    If you are in a standalone PC then most probably you should not be getting that prompt when you start outlook.

    Have you created a new profile in outlook going to control panel > mail > show profiles and tried to logon to that profile and checked what happens ?
