Assigning primary mail box in Outlook 2002

Not open for further replies.


While in the Contacts section of outlook, I clicked on help>detect and repair>then clicked the box that says, Discard my customized settings and restore default settings. I was then asked to insert the software disc which when I complied, appeared to re-install the software. I was asked to set up email accounts and configure my account from the beginning, which I have done, I also imported my archive.pst file and now I have a duplicate file architecture and the wrong accounts are active.

How can I activate the correct mailboxes to be primary and receive inbound and store outbound messages? Then how do I properly eliminate the duplicate files?
