I was trying to set up my Outlook 2007. I messed up because I thought I had a microsoft echange server and checked it and input some items I thought were my server and mailbox Name. Now when I open outlook, the first message I get says, "The connection to microsoft exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action." So I click OK since it is my only option. Then I get the second dialogue box that says, Microsoft Exchange. It has two fields, one for my server (which is inccorect because I don't have a microsoft exchange) and the other is my mailbox name which I just put my first name cause I didn't know what it meant. So When I click cancel, I get the third message, "cannot open your default e-mail folders. The file C:\Users\Jason\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.ost is not an offline folder file."

Then I click ok, which is the only choice and outlook closes.

Help, I just want to start from the beginning, but I messed up and now I can't get back to the beginning of outlook. One thing I was going to try was to uninstall Microsoft Office Small business and reinstall it. but I wasn't sure if that would mess up any other files I have saved for Excel or PP or Word that I've created.

For what its worth, on the advice from a friend, I did a "System Restore" by going to start then accessories, then System tools, then System restore, I restored it to a point before I made my "error".

Problem fixed and Now I have E-mail.

Thanks,

Jason.
