Don't forget to remove the Exchange account setting from the list of that email account applet. You can only do that if Outlook is not running.

Don't start Outlook. Use the control panel as noted above. When creating a new email account, the wizard will jump in.

nobus, why did you not follow the advice given? Creating a new *email* profile works, but it's unnecessary.

Don't bother if you got your solution, I just wanted to know why. You know yourself what it is like if an Asker is ignoring sound and simple advice ;-).

no, on the contrary; if your solution is much simpler, i need to know it, and use it.
that's how i function - the moment i start ignoring good advice - how can i learn more?
