Chapter 9. Outlook Essentials > Setting Up E-mail Accounts and Connections

Setting Up E-mail Accounts and Connections

Outlook 2002 eliminates the frustrating split personality that plagued Outlook 98 and Outlook 2000. Configuring those earlier versions required that you make a choice between two modes—Corporate/Workgroup (CW) and Internet Mail Only (IMO)—with different menus, feature sets, and options for each one. In Outlook 2002, the confusing CW/IMO split is gone. You can connect to any combination of accounts from any supported mail server, including Internet-standard (SMTP/POP3/IMAP) accounts, Exchange Server mailboxes, Hotmail accounts, and older third-party servers with MAPI transports.

The first time you run Outlook 2002, it scans your system for compatible e-mail client software. If it finds a previous version of Outlook (97/98/2000), Outlook Express, Netscape Mail or Netscape Messenger, Eudora Pro or Light, Microsoft Internet Mail, Exchange Inbox, or Windows Messaging, it offers to import your account settings (server information, username, and so on) and any existing mail messages. If you accept this option, you're done—Outlook sets up mail accounts and copies all your messages to your Inbox. On a system with no existing e-mail settings, you jump straight to a wizard that offers to set up an e-mail account.
