This follows an attempt to import some contact data from another computer, which only partially completed and caused a problem with Outlook and IE8. On re-booting IE8 seems to be working ok but Outlook is not.
There appears to be a good internet connection.
I have a Pop Peeper software to also access mail, but this appears not to collecting mail either, showing a Login error.
The imported data was in ODF format and was imported via CD to desktop and then attempted to be installed using Outlook import facility.
There was no existing contact data on the new computer, but did have a single contact folder available. The imported data was contained in about 14 contact folders which it was hoped it would create. Only one folder was successfully imported into the single folder with the same name 'contacts' but no new folders were created and the additional imported data was not installed.
The exporting computer has a Microsoft Exchange Server and POP account setup although the Exchange server is no longer available or used.It is setup with an Administrator account and user accounts.
The new computer does not have an exchange server, only POP account and both users have administrator rights.
Help in resolving this Outlook problem would be very much appreciated.
