Default HELP!! - Installing/Configuring Outlook

Hi!
I have installed Outlook 2003 from a whole office pack succesfully.
Originally I tried to use itto connect to my school's email, (which is an
exchange server thingy) unsuccesfully, and now I have followed steps on the
internet to connect to my Windows Live account. I downloaded the connector
and ran it but when I start up outlook it prompts me "The connection to the
Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected
to complete this action" OK The another dialog opens and promts me for:
Microsoft exchange server:
_____________________
Mailbox:
_____________________ Check Name

Once the names have been checked and are underlined, click OK

And from here there is nothing I can do OK and Cancel both close Outlook

Any Help appreciated...

Remove the Exchange account first since you have not been able to configure
it successfully.

Remove the exchange account from the outlook account properties (right click
outlook icon and click properties). Then you should be able to add your live
accounts.

Hi there, RockerRon
Unfortunately I've been unable to complete this- I'm not sure how to delete
the exchange account, as I cannot get the actual Outlook window open, as ot
close each time, therefore I cannot access the Tools menu, for example and I
was unable to figure out your way of doing it.

Use the Mail applet in Control Panel.
