    They Come From? (MSO2K)

    If I re-install MSO, it sets up various directory services...

    Then, when I restore my accounts etc. from a back-up, the services etc. get erased / replaced / over-written... they "are gone"...

    What file lists these that is getting over-written in the restore process?

    Regards,

    Can you please be a bit more specific as to which services are disappearing? Also which flavour of Outlook 200 are you using: Internet Only or Corporate/Workgroup? (If you're not sure, it will tell you under Help|About.)

    It's MSO2k v9.9.0.0.3821... internet only...

    It's the "News", and "Directory Services" I'm after... they show up in OE, but not in MSO...

    Outlook doesn't "do" Newsgroups. It never has - and is unlikely to do so in the future. You will have to keep using OE for that.

    From memory, Directory Services should be available under Tools|Services.

    It's Tools/Accounts...

    I'm not totally clear, but I understand what you're saying 'bout Outlook and newsgroups... but it DOES appear to do them (to the user) and they ARE accessible from Outlook... and somehow, even though it LOOKS like OE, it apparently is different in the storage etc...

    The Directory Services, accessed in the same manner, are, again, probably an "OE item" although again, the file storage etc. is apparently different...

    The description(s) of the issue is in itself my reason for wanting to understand... if it gets screwed up, as mine apparently do, where and how do I recover them?

    My feeling on this is that you are probably safer trying to run these features directly from OE. If you would prefer to stick with Outlook as a "one-stop shop", you could try setting up these features in OE separately as a form of backup. HTH
