Re: setting up outlook
Outlook is an email client.
It can not be a default email account. It can be a default email client.
To start using Outlook, find it on the start menu(usually under Programs/Microsoft Office) and open it..on first use if installed
properly, Outlook will create or prompt to create a profile...once complete....go to Tools/Account Settings(Outlook 2007) or
Tools/E-mail accounts(Outlook 2003) to setup your preferred email account using the email account provider's recommended settings.
If prompted to be the default email client, Outlook usually does, answer yes if you wish Outlook to be your default email client.
Note: Outlook by design does not have a newsgroup reader.
