remove Exchange Server settings from Outlook 2000

A customer of mine tried to set up Outlook 2000 and upgrade from Outlook Express.  When he set it up he chose Microsoft Exchange server but he only has a POP account. Now it errors out when we open it.  It says the information is not available and asks if I want to use the local files instead.  Whether I choose yes or no I get a runtime error and it shuts down the program.  I suspect  we need to tell it to check for a POP server instead of Exchange Server but I can't get to any tools because it shuts down.  I've removed it from MS Office and reinstalled it as part of the suite btu it hele the settings.  What can I do to make this work?

Click on the mail icon in the control panel.  Here you  can remove the Exchange server from the Outlook Profile and add the pop3 account.

If you need more specific directions..respond with what version of Windows your client is running and I will give you more specific details as to how to make this change.
