I have install Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2007. I have been using Vista as an OS and Windows Mail (Which is definitely not the same as Windows Live) but now I am unable to use Windows Mail so I setup Outlook. All is well so far as it relate to incoming, but Outgoing will not work. I manually set it up using the information my ISP required for Outlook Express and Windows Mail.
When I go into Repair Email Account and into more settings in an attempt to change the outgoing server (SMTP) from the default (25) to 587 as I had to do with Windows Mail and click ok, an icon comes saying "the account name is already being used. Choose another name." Any attempt to change any setting in that area, I receive the same reply.

Therefore, If anybody is using Outlook and have some idea what I am doing wrong, please advise ASAP. Thank you.
