    I haven't ever done this, but I think you'll need the CD. Run Setup and choose Uninstall.

    Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > and select MS Office 2000
    You will be presented with a screen as below - select Add or Remove features and you will be able to uninstall Outlook.

    It worked perfectly, thank you. Unfortunately It did not fix my problem. it's weird - I can get to the internet, but when i try to open Outlook, it tells me it can not connect to the server. Also when i try to change my password from her, it tells me the same thing. Any suggestions?

    Well, that sounds like a whole new thread.

    Assuming this is a standard POP3 server, can you get to your server with another mail program, such as Outlook Express? If not, are you sure your server name is correct?

    The name is correct, i went over it, and retyped it to be sure. I tried setting up Express, and I'm getting the same problem - host cannot be found.

    Actually it is a business account, my work email. I asked admin what might be the problem, and they advised me just to log in from other computers to get me email!

    So... are you inside your network, where you would expect this to work automatically, or outside on the public Internet? Sometimes your software can be led astray by a hosts file. In Windows 2000, the hosts file, if any exists, might be in C:WINNTSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC (that's where mine is). If it lists a numeric address translation for your mail server host name, try clearing that line, or check with your Admin whether it is correct. If not, well... maybe it's something else non-mail related?

    Inside. I went to the location you specified, and i did find a host file. it was, however, only a sample. I looked at the servers file, printed it out, and compared it with the same file on another PC. It looked identical. I don't know if it is an email issue, because if i try to do a password change from this machine, it says it cannot find server. but i get to the internet ok. I checked with admin, and the server name is correct - i went to NETWORK IDENTIFICATION then PROPERTIES and checked. Is there another place I might be missing?

    Thanks everyone, for all the assistance. it is greatly appreciated!
