I am using Outlook 2007; recently I got an SSD 500gig drive and reinstalled my Windows 7 Ultimate on it; all is fine. Then I installed Outlook 2007 from my disk, and I could not get it to recognize my POP3 at all. I have been installing/configuring Outlook for years (I was in systems until I retired, MCP, blah blah) and tried every trick in the book, but nada.
Oddly, my old version of W7 was still active on my old HDD and my POP3 Outlook 2007 was running perfectly. My wife also runs Outlook on her old XP machine with POP3 and it is fine.
I called my ISP (Comcast), and the tech (level 2) told me I might not be able to configure for POP3 on a new install because everything was going to IMAP. He suggested calling Microsoft, but I would rather have a root canal done without anesthetic that go through that. Ok, so we configured for IMAP and I hate it. I really, really, hate it. I really don't like the fact that I can't delete the emails off the server. That sucks eggs.
Does anyone have any information on rolling back to POP3 from IMAP in Outlook?
[EDIT]: Ok, I finally found this: http://www.msoutlook.info/question/705
I don't know if this will work, but I will try it tomorrow. I hope I don't totally screw things to the wall.
