Issue sending emails in outlook 2003 (on windows 7)

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I am running a window 7 32 bit machine and am trying to run outlook 2003 SP3 on this machine.

I initially had difficulty running the software (i was getting "The operation failed. An object could not be found." error when trying to configure the IMAP connction), I resolved this by running the application outside of compatibility mode.

I have configured the IMAP connection to the server and it recieves emails successfully. However I cannot send emails. I keep getting the error message: "The operation failed. An object could not be found."

Any ideas?
