Mail missing in Control Panel

Froghair

I recently installed Microsoft Office 2007. I am now getting my mail through
Outlook 2007 instead of Outlook Express 6. I want to create an e-mail profile
for my wife. Help states that once Outlook has been loaded and used, a Mail
icon will appear in the Control Panel, and that is where I need to go to see
profiles and create a new POP3 account. Mail is not in my Control Panel (Win
XP Home). Do you know what am doing wrong, or have not done correctly?
Thanks for your assistance.

If you're using the Category View for the Control Panel, the Mail applet is
under the "user Accounts" category. If you're using 64 Bit XP, the mail
applet will be in the 32 Bit Control Panel applications area.

Hal, thanks for the tip. My company is using Office 2003 Professional and
that is indeed where I just found Mail. My home PC is an XP and now using
Office 2007 Enterprise. I'll check tonight to see if your map is just as good
for that version. I wonder why the reference to Mail being found on the
Control Panel screen?

While I have your attention, when I exported my Outlook Express Address Book
to Outlook, they were brought over as Business Cards. Does that sound right
and can they be changed back to the more wholesome household screen?

With Contacts open, go to 'View|Current View', select either "Address Cards"
or "Detailed Address Cards" instead of "Business Cards". I suspect one of
the two will fill that "more wholesome" requirement.
