Greetings

Please help! I am so confused.

I would like help and advice regarding how to configure Office Outlook 2007

with Business Contact Manager and to use it effectively - and hopefully

easily.

I list my queries for clarity and ease of understanding and so that I can

follow the advice given for each point - I really do not have a clue about

Outlook 2007!

I need Outlook 2007 to be able to use Samsung PC Studio 3 to be able to sync

my laptop and mobile phone.

1 I downloaded Office Professional 2007 which should include Office

Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager, but it is showing on my Start

Menu as only Office Outlook 2007. Is this a fault or will the Business

Contact Manager be present once I configure?

2 My current ISP Caribsurf, offers an email account. Do I have to use

this for configuration or can I use my Windows LiveMail account details?

3 If I have to use the ISP email account, can I change it and make

Windows Live Mail my default email programme?

4 If Outlook has to be my default account, can I export addresses, emails

etc to my other email accounts?

5 I read that secureserver.net can be used for configuration and as I

will be travelling extensively - Africa, West Indies, Europe and America - is

this setting suitable for my requirements?

6 Are there any settings that I can use on configuration that can remain

unchanged when I am travelling?

7 I have unpaid Yahoo and Hotmail accounts - is there anyway to sync them

all?

8 Will wireless connection impact on Outlook's performance?

9 Do I need any other additional programmes to enable Outlook to meet my

needs?

I realise that I have asked a lot of questions, some of which may

interconnect, as I said I have no clue about Outlook!

Thanks for the time you have taken to read this and thanks for any responses

that assist me (and others)

Enjoy your day.

Peace and Love

Ms Q-reeus

Did you install BCM? It's an optional install.

Use them both, if you wish.

If you wish.

Outlook cannot _be_ a "default account". It is a mail client, not an account.

You can specify any of your configured accounts in Outlook as the default

account. This will be the account whose address gets used on a new mail

message if you don't specifically choose a sending account. Outlook will

always reply to a message using the account which receives the original

message.

Only you can say whether or not it's suitable for your needs. Google Mail is

a choice used by many. I'm not familiar with the SecureServer features.

Trying to link to secureserver.net, for me, produces "This sight is not

currently available."

Most. It depends on what you're trying to do, though.

The Hotmail accounts, probably. The unpaid Yahoo accounts, not without Ypops

(http://ypopsemail.com/)


> 8 Will wireless connection impact on Outlook's performance?


Outlook doesn't know or care how you have connected. Performance of your

network connection will bepend on the network infrastructure.

Depends on whether or not you've stated them all.
