I am having an issue trying to set email account in outlook. I just purchased Microsoft office professional 2010. The desktop is a new HPE-150t with Win7 (64 bit). I am connected to my work place through VPN and trying to setup email through outlook server.
When launching outlook or adding new email account I always get stuck when outlook tries to connect to outlook server and it keeps asking for my credentials. I tried both the automatic setup and the manual setup (entering the server details explicitly).
I know that the VPN is active as I am able to browse through internal websites behind the firewall. I was also able to configure outlook to access my gmail (through IMAP).
Wondering if anyone has any ideas or success in a similar configuration.
