Setting Up Outlook 2007

We recommend Thunderbird for all email needs because it's less prone to hack attacks than Outlook and it's just better. Not convinced? Read on to setup Outlook 2007 with CalicoHosting.com. Please note that because there are different versions of Outlook these instructions might vary slightly from what appears on your screen. If that happens, take a few seconds to poke around and you'll be able to get past any inconsistencies.
