For troubleshooting purposes, please create a new Windows account (Control Panel, User Accounts). Be sure to put it in the Administrator group. Log in with the new user and configure your mail account (the first time you open Outlook you'll be prompted to enter an email account, or you can go to Control Panel, Mail to set up a new profile and/or mail account). If this doesn't help, you can delete the new user and all his folders later.

Did you do this? If not, please do this at your earliest convenience.

Maybe we could have one last try ?

Is there another messaging sevice I could download and install on this PC ?

If this new one works I could dispense with Outlook altogether.

Windows includes Outlook Express, which is similar to Outlook, but quite scaled down. You should see it under Start, All Programs. If you don't, go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Add/Remove Windows Components, and scroll down to Outlook Express.

Here are some other free email clients:

Thunderbird: http://www.mozilla.com/thunderbird/ (Most Graphical Platforms)
Opera Mail: http://www.opera.com...cts/desktop/m2/ (Graphical Platforms)
Apple Mail: http://www.apple.com.../features/mail/ (Mac)
Pegasus Mail: http://www.pmail.com...nloads_de_t.htm (Windows, DOS, and Novell)
Eudora Mail: http://www.eudora.com/download/ (Mac and Windows)
NetMail: http://www.internet-...com/netmail.htm (Windows)
