How to get Outlook 2003 properties command

Hi,

Am using XP and outllook 2003. I want to know is there a shortcut to get outlook2003 properties command.
Normally from start menu, I right click on outlook menu and get properties command. I want to instruct our users who are  on remote sites on "how to Configure Outlook 2003 RPC over HTTP Client". What am worried is that, in case the users don't have the outlook2003 menu in the start menu itself, then there is no way I can instruct them on how to get into the properties command. Can someone please advise me.

Regards,

Charley

Yes indeed, the best way to configure Outlook settings is through the control panel. If you cant see the mail icon in the control panel then there is a problem with 'Mlcfg32.cpl' which is a control panel file. Since the steps to fix this is too lenghty to be displayed here, I have a Technet articles URL below that provides a detailed description of what needs to be done. Hope this resolves and answers your question

You can configure Outlook via Control Panel> Mail icon - even if you don't have an Outlook Icon on their desktop.
This is the best place to configure Outlook.

Control Panel, Mail as an alternative ?

Mail is not always appearing in Control Panel. Then the only option is from start menu, right click on outlook menu and get properties command. However if the user have already deleted the outlook menu from Start menu, then I don't have any choice.

If mail does not appear in Control Panel, then you shouldn't find an Outlook icon anywhere either.
As long as you have Outlook installed, you should see Mail unless you are not showing all icons (classic view).

Understood

Unless they click start, run outlook then configure it from there ?

you could include an additional few lines on how to put outlook back onto the start menu if it is not there (right click, properties, customise etc)

I tried with a test account. Mail is not showing in control panel. However Oulook menu appears in Start menu. I can right click outlook and select properties. If I remove outlook menu from the list (Start menu) then there is no way I can get outlook properties.

What are you seeing in Control Panel and do you have an option (Top Left-Hand corner) to show Classic View?
