As far as I am aware WestonGroup's article should work, but one other thing to be aware of is that Outlook 98 or 2000 in Corporate/Workgroup mode (check under help->about) doesn't support IMAP.  You will have to switch over to Internet Mail Only in order to access the account.  If you are running Outlook 2002 or 2003 that is not an issue because they both have a "unified" install mode.
