View Full Version : why does outlook auto-config only allow to setup one acct?

If i use the outlook reg file, the settings are overwritten everytime i use the feature. Only one account exists at a time.

For some reason the acct is created in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager\Accounts\host_user_name" instead of "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager\Accounts\email_user@domain"

Considering one host can have more than one email user / acct, this is a major inconvenience

not a clue what your referring to!?

to add an email to outlook you go into the program:

tools > accounts > add > mail > go through the wizard > once back to the list of accounts, select the account > properties > servers tab > check the 'my server requires authentication' field > click ok

not sure if DA requires the 'my server requires authentication' part, although you can follow that procedure for as many emails as you want :)
