Greyed out MS Outlook options?

When your employer installs Microsoft Outlook for you, they may select to not let you use it to connect to any other accounts than your one company mail account. These limitations are set in the Windows registry by setting the DisableHTTP/DisableIMAP/etc options in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Options to 1.

Opening regedit and setting them back to 0 allows you to for example send and read hotmail using MS Outlook:


Adding hotmail or other mail accounts in MS Outlook 2002: go to the following menu: Tools / E-mail Accounts -> Add a new account (for for example POP/IMAP accounts you're still depending on firewall restrictions though, but at least Outlook will let you have a try)

(thanks, Lars, for the tip)

I must admit to being more impressed for it. I've even recommended it to all my friends.
