Chapter 27. Outlook Essentials > Choosing an Outlook Configuration

Choosing an Outlook Configuration

When you install Outlook 2000 for the first time on a new PC, you have to make a crucial configuration decision. The choice you make determines which support files Outlook uses to process incoming mail, and if you make the wrong decision you may discover that some features required on your corporate network aren't available. If you upgrade over a previous version, Outlook may make this decision automatically, without ever alerting you that you had a choice.

Note

In Outlook 97 and Outlook 98, changing configurations was an arduous process that essentially required completely reinstalling the software. In Outlook 2000, on the other hand, it's relatively easy to change configurations. That capability is valuable if you normally use only Internet mail but occasionally need to connect to an Exchange Server or other MAPI-based mail system. For users who need to switch configurations regularly, this improvement alone is worth the cost of the upgrade to Office 2000.
