    Try going into the control panel (classic view) and open mail and delete any profiles that are there and add a new one for the new domain.

    With Outlook closed, try going into Control Panel and then doubleclick on the mial icon. Remove the current outlook setting and then close the icon.

    Open Oultook again and it will ask you to setup Outlook. Go throguh the settings and see if that resolves your issue.
