here is the goal:

a user at work wants to open a spreadsheet (excel 2000) from email, save it to the desktop, and then send the file from excel using the Send To -> Mail recipient option. we get a pop-3 error when doing this. we have an exchange 2003 server and outlook 2000 is correctly configured on his machine. when he tried the first time, apparantly some walkthrough popped up in excel to set his email up, and obviously he did it incorrectly. can anyone tell me how to get back into those options and configure the program (excel or outlook, i assume excel) settings so that we can send this as an email? any answers would be much appreciated.

thanks in advance :tazz:

excell doesn't actually send the mail....it just sends the mail to outlook...either as an attatchement or as the mesage body. the only way that the settings could have been changed from your exchange server to a pop3 server would be for those settings to have been changed in outlook..is excell forwarding the message to outlook or outlook express?

thanks again

uninstall outlook express...there's no reason for it to be there if you're using exchange...express doesn't usually play well with exchange....my guess is they were at one point trying to use that to check either their home mail or webmail...which they can configure regular outlook to do
