Changing Outlook98
and Outlook2000 to
the Corporate Configuration

Outlook98 Corporate Configuration
Outlook2000 Corporate Configuration

When first installing Outlook, my preference is to choose the Corporate or Workgroup Option. This allows you to directly assign the name and location of the file Outlook will use for keeping your e-mail. This is much easier to do right from the start rather than adding it in later.

  1. This allows you to directly determine the location of the file Outlook will use for keeping your e-mail. For example, this way you could put in in C:\E-MAIL  instead of buried in the default one.

  2. It makes it much easier to locate if you need to backup or restore a file.

  3. It also allows you to choose the name of the file. Again the default of outlook.pst is not very descriptive.

  4. It also allows you to keep your e-mail file on a server or other central location

  5. It allows for multiple e-mail profiles to be used. This way more than one person can easily use Outlook on the same computer and have completely different e-mail files.

1. To determine which configuration of Outlook is currently installed, right click on the Outlook icon and select Properties.
2. If you see the screen below, you have the Internet Only configuration installed.
3. If you see the screen below, you already have the Corporate/Workgroup configuration installed.
4. To reconfigure either one, you will need to have the original source files available on CD or a network. This would either be from Outlook or Office files.
5. For configuration instructions, click on the appropriate link for whichever version you have:

Outlook98
Outlook2000
