Unable to configure Outlook on server

I have installed Outlook 2003 on a Windows Server 2003 server. The installation-process was without errors of any kind.

Now when I try to configure outlook to use a specific user-account (the same as the login-account), I just can't get further than the screen where I have to chose wether it should be Exchange, POP3 and so on. The screen is greyed out.
http://gwaihir.eva.dk/OL_Error.gif shows what I get (It is in danish, but I'm sure you all are familiar with the screen anyway).

The account I use to login to the server with is a domain account. The account are member of Domain Users and Domain Admins.

What is happening or rather what should I do to make it happen?


Best Regards

Hi Kasper_K,

The 2 first options in
Tools / email-accounts
are ADD and VIEW
Did you get the grayed out-screen when you choose for ADD?

Thats exactly what happens. When I choose ADD (or VIEW - ADD) I get that screen.

Then it seems to me that the administrator of the exchange server didn't give you sufficient rights to add accounts.

I replaced the "mapi.dll" with the one on the exchange server. After that I could configure outlook.
