hello,
an older person bought a NEW windows7 pc, and misconfigured outlook.
when outlook is started i get this screen :
oit looks like somehow he got an exchange profile configured.
Problem is : how can i get the outlook configuration wizard again started, or how can i configure Outlook properly?
there seems no way getting out of this screen, no buttons available

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.

ok, i could remove the existing profile, but it insisted on making a new profile, when starting outlook
i do not want an exchange account
how can i get to the normal pop3 wizard for mail?

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

QlemoC++ DeveloperCommented:
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 ;-).

nobusAuthor Commented:
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?
