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?

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.

Well, now the account are member of Domain Users, Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, Exchange Domain Servers, Exchange Enterprise Servers.

But still the same error.

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