Installing Outlook 2010 but don't want to use an email account - possible?

Not open for further replies.


I installed OL 2010 using Hotmail only because I thought I had to. Can I use Outlook and not have an associated email account? I am using a new laptop and will not use it for email - but want to use the other features (address book, calendar, notes, etc). Can I get rid of this hotmail profile?

Sure. Just remove the account from File | Account Settings | Account Settings.
