E-mails are one of the easiest ways of communication. You can register an e-mail account on any of the e-mail domains like Yahoo, Gmail or MSN. Once the e-mail account is registered, you could login to send and receive e-mails. Microsoft Outlook 2007 is an e-mail client program which can enhance your mailing experience. You can configure the e-mail account and start sending/receiving e-mails through Microsoft Outlook. This saves your time as you would not have to open the webmail and login to an account each time when you want to send/receive e-mails. Outlook 2007 checks e-mails at regular intervals if you are connected to the Internet, so, you do not miss any e-mail message. Since the e-mails are downloaded to Microsoft Outlook, you can read e-mails in the Inbox even if you are offline. You can customize the Inbox and create message rules. The downloaded e-mails can be saved in specific folders as defined in message rules. Microsoft Outlook 2007 can be installed on Windows XP or higher operating systems. It works on all versions of Windows 7.
Common problems related to setting up of Microsoft Outlook 2007 in Windows 7, and their solutions:

You have to be online when you configure the e-mail account in Microsoft Outlook 2007. If the Internet connection is unavailable, you can get many error messages while configuring an e-mail account in Microsoft Outlook. You may be connected to Internet but access to websites can be blocked due to various other issues. Try to open any website through IE to make sure that the Internet connection is working fine and then configure Microsoft Outlook.
Incoming and outgoing server address and port numbers have to be mentioned while configuring an e-mail account in Microsoft Outlook. You have to select the server type: POP3, SMTP or IMAP to setup an account in Microsoft Outlook. If any of these information is typed wrong, the configuration of an e-mail will fail. You can ring your Internet service providers to get information about the e-mail server settings.
An e-mail address with the password needs to be typed in while configuring the account, as it will be verified on an e-mail server. If the log in credential is wrong, you may get authentication error while configuring an e-mail account. Some e-mail accounts require separate authentication for incoming and outgoing servers.
