During setup under server type I accidentally chose the option "Microsoft Exchange Server" instead of IMAP. Don't ask me what I was thinking, I had a multitasking breakdown.
Anyway, I'd love to go in there and fix it up and configure my IMAP settings, but every time I start up Outlook I get the message, "The connection to the microsoft exchange server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action." Then a login box comes up for my server and email settings which obviously do not exist, so I cancel it out at which point I get the message, "Unable to open your default e-mail folders. The file C:\Users\***\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.ost in not an offline folder file."
When I click "ok", the program shuts down completely. Any attempts to restart it follow the same cycle.
I guess I need to just start over, but other than uninstalling the ENTIRE OFFICE SUITE, I have no other thoughts as to how to undo this mistake I made when trying to configure the server.
My ultimate goal is to use Gmail's IMAP via Outlook, syncing it all to my Palm eventually.
I'm using Vista.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
