Not open for further replies.


Can I use just my Hotmail account with Outlook 2007? Everytime I try open my outlook, I get this - " The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action." Then I hit OK and it asks for the Microsoft Exchange server and a Mailbox. What can I do, if anything?

Thank you

I can't understand why there are SO many posts about this. I can only surmise that people don't READ the dialog boxes that appear when Outlook is run for the first time.

The easiest solution is to create a new Outlook Mail Profile using Control Panel-Mail-Show Profiles-Add and then READ the dialg boxes when you set up Outlook.

Download and install the Outlook Connector to use your Hotmail account in Outlook.

Get it here.
