Greetings, auraorange.

> groupware mode
I've never heard of that in relation to Outlook.  There are two modes: Corporate/Exchange and Internet Only.  If you're accessing an Exchange server, then you're in Corporate/Exchange mode.  Otherwise you're in Internet Only.

In Outlook 2003, there is no Groupware mode as such. But you do get the following options when you create a new account.

1. Microsoft Exchange Server
Connect to an exchange server to read email, access public folders, and share documents.

Connect to a POP3 email server to download your emails.

Connect to an IMAP email server to download email and synchronize mailbox folders.

Connect to an HTTP email server such as Hotmail to download email and synchronize mailbox folders.

5. additional Server Types
Connect to another workgroup or 3rd party mail server.

Judging by what you mentioned above, your requirement may be for either items 2, 4 or 5.

If you already ahave an email account set up in outlook, you can view which type by selecting Tools > accounts.

In Outlook 2003, you need to delete and recreate the account in order to change the type. Outlook 2000 provides a direct option to reconfigure.

Good Luck!

Well unfortunately it was the program I was installing that asked for a groupware setup, but I clicked on the Corporate/Exchange option and that was the right one I needed
