    Apparently the server for one of my email accounts is down. MS Office 2007 is constantly looking for the server and keeps bringing up the username and password box for that account. I want to deactivate the account, not delete it so it will stop looking for the server. How can I do this?

    You should be able to go to Tools/Accounts and bring up the listing of accounts you have defined. Highlight the one you want to deactivate. If you want to permanently get rid of it then click the "Remove" on the dialog box and it will be deleted. If however you want to have Outlook stop checking for mail, then you can click on the Send/Receive drop-down on the tool bar and choose Send/Recieve Options, and you can change the settings for that account so that it never checks for new mail.
