Configuring Outlook2007


Configuring Outlook2007 is fairly straightforward and
not that much different than with previous version
If you have a Existing PST file you want Outlook2007 to use,
it requires just a bit more to do but saves time in the long-runThe steps below detail both procedures.
1. After installing Outlook, click on the Outlook icon on the desktop
2. This will bring up the following screen. Click on Next
3. Check Yes and click on the Next button
4. Click on the Add button
5. I’ve found it faster to manually configure the settings
6. For now we’ll go ahead with a regular Internet E-Mail setup
7. Fill in with all the information provided by your ISP or tech support.
8. If your Outgoing mail server requires authentication, click on the More Settings button and enter the appropriate information
9. If your ISP uses something other than the default ports, click on the Advanced tab and enter them.
10. Under the General Tab I like to put in the person’s name or something more descriptive than the default which is the e-mail address.
11. Click on OK which will bring you back to the main setup window
12. Click on Test Account Settings
13. If it works, then click on the Next and Finish buttons
