Here are the tips to solve the issues arising in the configuration of Microsoft Outlook:
- Create a new profile
- Check the Internet connection
- Solve other Internet connection issue
Create a new profile
The first step to troubleshoot the configuration issues is to make a new profile that comprises the service with which you are having issues. You could generate a new profile from the Mail And Fax icon present in the Control Panel or from the Inbox property page. In Control Panel, you need to double-click the Mail And Fax icon. In the Services tab, hit on the Show Profiles to list your profiles. Then, select Add to open the Inbox Setup Wizard. Verify that the default is placed to 'Use the following information services'. Then, you need to click to clear all services except the one you are troubleshooting. For troubleshooting function, add only one service at a time. Then hit Next and in the Profile Name box, type a name for the new profile. Then, follow the Inbox Setup Wizard prompts, answering the questions for the service until you complete.
Check the Internet connection
To ensure your Internet connection is working correctly, set up your Internet connection and ping a recognized Internet Protocol address. If you could ping a known IP address fruitfully, basic TCP/IP connectivity is running properly. Then, try to ping the same server using 'servername.com' rather than its IP address. On an MS-DOS prompt, type the following command: ping servername.com if this works, your Domain Name Server settings are functioning correctly. A DNS server preserves a database for solving host names and IP addresses permitting users of computers configured to question the DNS to identify remote computers by friendly host names instead of IP addresses.
Nearly all Internet addresses and connection settings are case sensitive. Verify for correct capitalization. Ensure your profile does not comprise multiple services that need a modem connection. Then, set up your Internet connection, and next start Microsoft Outlook. If you get an error trying to send or obtain mail, verify all of your Internet Mail settings with the Internet service provider.
