Outlook XP won't install MAPI services

I did the default installation for Office XP Pro. It installed the 'internet only' components of Outlook XP. When I go back to install MAPI services it says that it does it but it doesn't. Any ideas?

Internet Mail Only mode?  That was only available in Outlook 98 & 2000.  Outlook 2002 (xp) and 2003 have a unified mode.  By trying to install MAPI services are you talking about the Exchange Server service in Outlook's email accounts settings?

I'm sorry. You're saying that by default that Outlook 2002 should respond to MAPI requests from a 3rd party application by default? If so it is not. My application is supposed to send email to a group in the contacts folder of Outlook. This is not working. What can I check?

I'd first recommend verifying that Outlook is configured as your default email program.  Go to CONTROL PANEL, double click on the INTERNET OPTIONS and go to the PROGRAMS tab to configure that.

Do you have an email account configured in Outlook that can send/receive email?
