I just got a new computer and I was setting up my Microsoft Office Outlook, and it has been giving me nothing but problems. In previous years when setting up outlook it is a very simple process where I'd put in my email and password and it worked perfect. Now I've spent hours and I cannot get it set up the same. I'm on my eight hour now, and its ridiculous. First it didnt set up my email as default and wouldnt let me delete emails and would just put a cross out line. It didnt set up the acount as a POP and I had to learn about that and try to set it up right. Finally I got the pop email to set up and now it appears my email (aol) is the default but I'm still not allowed to delete emails, although it is no longer doing the "cross-out" thing where there is just a line through the email. Now when I hit the delete button it simply does nothing, however when i Open the email and hit the "x" to delete when the email is open it will delete. And I still have this unnecessary "personal" email folders, and both a trash and a deleted email folders which were never there when setting up previous computers.
I wanted to start over from the begining set up so I tried uninstalling and reinstalling twice, including manual searching outlook files/folders to delete everything, yet on re-installation it still has my settings, and even emails, and does not let me re-setup. I only can go in options as I was when setting up as a POP. I really don't understand why this is being so difficult, and whatever Microsoft is doing here itan awful choice. Someone please help
