Outlook 2000 I go to Tools > Accounts > "All" tab. I have a number of directory service accounts: Bigfoot Internet Directory Service, Verisign Internet Directory Service, and WhoWhere Internet Directory Service.

What are these for? Can I delete them all? Are they spam?
I've been getting TONS of spam the last month or so (7-10 a day), whereas previously we hadn't had any.

Thanks!

That sounds more like Outlook Express, not Outlook 2000

I have Office XP Pro and 2003 Pro, it is not on those and I do not recall it being a feature of 2000 Premium

When I press tools, e-mail accounts, view accounts, it shows a list of accounts, nothing else

Yes, that's how it looks. It's weird tho, why does the titlebar say I have Outlook 2000, and so does my "about MS Outlook"? I know I used to have Express and didn't like it because it didn't have a lot of the features the full blown one had. Maybe it kept some of the features? :blink:

Doesn't matter I guess - I have the features I need. And since those aren't spyware, will just ignore them.

Thanks for your help! :whistling:
