Is there any way I can transfer my connection details from my desktop to my newly acquired laptop without involving the server administrator?
When I last reformatted the PC hard drive I had to ask the administrator to configure Outlook for me, they used a program called VNC Server to take remote control of my PC, but it took them a week or so to get round to it. I need to reformat again and have tried to copy details to the laptop so I can keep in contact whilst I deal with the PC, with zero success!
I have meticulously recorded all the server details, gone into control panel > Mail >Email Accounts and tried to using both add e-mail account and view or change existing e-mail accounts to set up on laptop . I can insert all details, starting with Exchange Settings page and then all the other details by clicking the More Settings tab [all the details on the laptop morror those on the PC] but even though I get the dialog box asking for my password [username already filled in] I am told the Outlook has to be online to proceed to veryfy my name but there is no way I can do this. If I try and set up with Outlook already started it tells me I can’t set up with Outlook started and I must go to Control Panel>Mail etc – round and round in circles!
Is it possible to set up server details on the laptop without the involvement of server Administrator, if so is there a utility that I could use that would copy details to a flash storage disk and transfer these to the laptop [and back to the PC once I have reformatted the HD] or do I have to do it manually?
I have trawled the web, but can't resolve this!
Any help, advice, assistance would be greatly appreciated
