Hi All

I have a user that tried to setup outlook 2010 from 2007.  Not sure of the actions taken but understand that .pst was copied to the new machine.  

Now user is asked for exchange details (we are not on exchange) and when we are unable to give the correct details outlook quits.

Any suggestions?

This is a brand new PC (laptop).

1. Read the tutorial below.

2. After the email account account is created, open the Outlook.pst file and copy all emails, contacts and other items to the new email profile.

Hi there - thanks for the link.  At this stage I can not even open outlook.  Is there a profile that I can delete?

I'm using remote assist and at the moment seem to be stuck between user accounts :-(

When I try to open outlook I get a message:

"Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?"
- Microsoft Outlook
 > Click Yes

Then I get a message:
"Cannot open your defaul email folders. The information store could not be opened"

And when I click "OK" outlook simply quits.


When I switch to a new user I can open outlook properly, it takes me to the setup wizard.
