Does Outlook in Office 2000 Professional support MS Exchange Server?

Posted on 2006-06-05
Last Modified: 2010-04-08
IT installed MS Office 2003 on my Dell.  To get an Office Shortcut Bar, I needed to uninstall Office 2003, install an earlier version of Office (I installed Office 2000 Professional), use that shortcut bar, then reinstall Office 2003.  Except that I dislike the clutter of Office 2003, and I would as soon just stick with my older Office 2000.  Problem is that when I try to set up my email account in Outlook 2000, it allows me to select POP or IMAP mail servers but not MS Exchange Server.  Is there a way to bring up MS EX Srvr as an option?

    Thanks very much.  However, having converted to Corporate or Workgroup, the Accounts option disappeared from the Tools menu.  So, I can't set up a mail account.  I don't think it's an enterprise restriction, because I can do it on my laptop.  Any suggestions as to how I can proceed?

    Sorry, I don't have access to Outlook 2000 anymore, so I can't duplicate what you've described.  You should still be able to set an account up from the Mail icon in the Control Panel.  In fact having switched from one install to the other you might need to create a new profile anyway.
