Outlook 2000 takes a long time to start up and can't use the rules wizard.

I am using Outlook configured to connect to an Exchange server and to my private pop3 email. I no longer have access to the exchange server. Sometimes Outlook takes a very long time to start up.

When I try to use the rules wizard, it tells me that I need to connect to the Exchange server. How do I get around this?

What do you mean you no longer have access to the Exchange server? If there is no Exchange server in the mix then you need to reconfigure Outlook so that it isn't trying to use Exchange. If you have the Exchange configuration to store offline emails, then export them to a PST before changing the configuration of Outlook.

Does this apply only to the emails or to all the other sections such as contacts and calendar also?

Right now I have everything in a .ost file.

Everything is stored in the OST - you would have to export every folder to a PST file.

How do I reconfigure? Do I just drop the Exchange account or do I convert from Corporate to Internet?

Could this possibly affect my Chapura Palm pilot synchronization?

I haven't used Outlook 2000 for some time, but I don't think you can convert back to Internet.
Once you have all the content out, you would drop the Exchange server from the configuration and add new services back in, including personal folders.

The palm sync would probably be affected as well, as the content is "new". Once you have the content out I would be looking to reset everything that uses Outlook.
