    So, I went and spent the $$ for Outlook 2010 yesterday, installed on laptop, happy happy.

    Go to set up Outlook mail account on my Surround, no dice. Apparently (*now* I reaserch a little) it's only supporting "Outlook Exchange". Embarrasingly, I don't know what that is in comparision to "Outlook" and/or, why it won't work.

    Why dey do dat? :(

    Outlook Exchange (or more accurately MS Exchange Server) is an email server, Outlook 2010 is an email client. So like the way Google runs an email server and the gmail web interface (or the mail app on your phone) is the email client. These days email servers are used for more than just email, it includes things like your calendar and contacts.

    If all you want to do is send and receive emails and manage your calendar and contacts then most likely don't want to run your own email server, you'll probably have an account at work/school/uni (they might run an exchange server), on hotmail (which uses Exchange ActiveSync), yahoo and/or gmail.

    Gmail was working fine..to be truthful, all I *really* wanted was the "O" (with the clock and envelope) Outlook logo tile.

    Silly, I know, but...

    I believe Gmail does over-the-air (OTA) activesync with an Outlook client as well.

    did that. All works fine, I've now got a slightly nicer Hotmail tile than the Gmail one.

    Still no "O" tho. ;)
