Using Outlook 2000 in Workgroup e-Mail

The main e-mail clients delivered by Microsoft are now:
- Outlook Express for Internet e-mail and as Newsgroup reader
- Outlook (
98 or now 2000), for Internet e-mail,Exchange server and MS-Mail.

The "MS-Mail" option allows to use Outlook as e-mail client in the Exchange
Workgroup (instead of the "Windows Messaging" included with Win95,98, NT4)

You need anyway first to install "Windows Messaging" to be able to configure
the users of the mail post-office
Once that is working, you can start the "upgrade to Outlook 2000":

after a short delay, you are prompted to enter the user-Information and
the 20 character CD-key:

Agree to the License conditions:

Select the installation method: my preference is the "customize..." option
(to see what the installation will do):

Only the "Customize.." installation options allows to define the
installation path
(and since Outlook 2000 required 200 Mbyte for installation,
there may be on some systems the need to install it on a different drive)

While Outlook 98 enforced the Installation of "Internet Explorer 4.x",
Outlook 2000 strongly suggests to upgrade to "Internet Explorer 5.0",
but allows you to deny such an installation
(since I am short of disk-capacity
on this system, I selected the IE 5.0 Minimal installation)

Select the features to be installed: the icon shows the selected/defined
method. to change click on the down-arrow:

Files are getting copied/installed
you need to reboot to finalize
the installation
Setup continues after the restart,
the Mail-Icon on the desktop
has changed:
To verify the configuration, right-click on the
mail-icon and select "Properties"
You need to have the 3 components:
- Microsoft Mail
- Personal Address Book
- Personal Folder

You can configure
Multiple Profiles for the Outlook Mail Client.
