Undo Exchange POP3 Link?

dklauk asked
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
This is a follow-up to https://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_22091837.html which has to do with re-connecting a crashed XP client pc to an SBS2003 domain network.  The client pc's originally were not set up using the \\servername\connectcomputer wizard, but I used the wizard to re-connect the rebuilt pc.

I got it to connect and the client pc can see the domain and access net printer resources.  However, the client's Outlook account is defaulted to Exchange.  When I open Outlook a message shows indicating that the name does not match one in the address list.

I can't change Outlook at the client pc to what it used to be as a POP3 account b/c I can't get past this mismatch error condition.

I have not installed Exchange--to my knowledge.

Is there a way to change the default client pc Outlook email account back to a POP3?

I hope I gave enough info here.  I have tried several things at the server but to no avail.  BTW, I am NOT a network heavy, so please keep that in mind on responses.
