For those who find Microsoft Outlook to be unnecessary, getting rid of the program can feel like it's harder than it really is. There are three methods that this process will go over. This process also shows how to uninstall Outlook without uninstalling other programs you may have installed with Microsoft Office. Click on the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." From the control panel window, double-click on the "Add/Remove Programs" icon. Scroll down the list of programs until you see the listing for Microsoft Office, and click once on it. (It may say "Professional Edition 2003" or whichever version you have installed.) Then click the button "Change." Next you will see a window pop-up for Microsoft Office Setup. Select the dot on "Add or Remove Features." Uncheck the box for Microsoft Outlook and click on "Update." The setup will then begin to process the removal from the system. b> Removing Outlook Through Windows Components Wizard b> Click on the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." From the Control Panel window, double-click on the "Add/Remove Programs" icon. When the window pops up, click on the "Add/Remove Windows Components" icon at the right side of the window. The Windows Component Wizard will appear. Scroll down the list of components up to Outlook Express. Uncheck the box next to the icon and click "Next." Click "Finish" once the process has completed. b> How to Remove Hidden Outlook Files b> To perform this process, you must allow Windows to show hidden files and folders. To do this, open any folder and click on the "Tools" button. Under the View tab in Folder Options, scroll down the Advanced list until you see "Hidden Files and Folders." Place the dot on "Show Hidden Files and Folders." (If you want to undo this later, follow this same step and place the dot back on "Do not show hidden files and folders.")= Once you can see the hidden files, open another folder and type "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft" into the Address bar, and press "Enter." This will open the folder where the hidden Outlook files are located.(%username% is the name of the administrator or user on your computer. For example, if your name is John Doe, you would type "C:\Documents and Settings\John Doe\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft.") Click on the Outlook folder and delete it. Check the Office folder as well because there might be Outlook files in there as well. If there are any, delete them.
Disconnect Hotmail From Outlook b> Many people use Microsoft Outlook to manage their email accounts. Even email accounts that have Web interfaces, such as Microsoft's Hotmail, are able to utilize Outlook's more robust feature set. When you stop using an account, however, you might want to remove it from your Outlook accounts. You can remove your old Hotmail account from Outlook's "Account Information" menu. Click the "File" tab and click "Account Settings" on the "Account Information" menu. Click to select your Hotmail account from the list and click "Remove." Click "Yes" to confirm that you want to remove the account. Hope this helps.

I need to change my hotmail account on my phone to outlook


Remove your old hotmail account and create a new one, Outlook. If you want to keep both names - just keep them - or you can create an alias by signing in to your hotmail acct from any Internet-connected computer (both Outlook and hotmail are using the same database of accounts)

I cant access my hotmail as its changed to Outlook and now cant get any of my old emails even though they say they will be sent over


My Hotmail went over to Windows Live Mail ok and I have all my old mail. My Messenger became Skype which is slow and clumsy but works. I suggest you try logging on directly on the Hotmail site at
https://login.live.com.
Get back to me if this still doesn't work.

You still have your Hotmail account. You just have to access it through Outlook and its new and "improved" interface. Your old email is still there, and you still have all the functionality. It just looks different.

And no, I'm not a fan of the "new and improved" Outlook. I'd much rather have it the way it used to be.

How do I get back to my ordinary hotmail account instead of outlook?


You and me both. Unfortunately Microsoft has scrapped the Hotmail interface for the Outlook interface. It's still the same email account, just with a different look and feel. Unless you can raise enough money to buy Microsoft from Bill Gates, I'm afraid we're both stuck with the "new and improved" interface.

Unable to open microsoft office outlook 2010 and link it to my hotmail acct


1. Upgrading to Outlook 2010 with a profile that contains at least one DAV and/or OLC 12 account
If your Outlook profile already included a Hotmail account, Outlook 2010 shows a dialog to indicate that in order to continue synchronizing between Outlook and the service you need to download and install Outlook Connector 14.

Clicking on "Upgrade Now" automatically starts the download of the OLC 14 package. Should you choose "Remind me later" you will still be able to browse the previously downloaded data for the Hotmail account, but you won't be able to synch until OLC 14 is installed. clip_image001_thumb.png Once Outlook 2010 is open the following message will be displayed in the main Outlook explorer if OLC 14 is needed: clip_image003_thumb.png Should you chose not to download the OLC and dismiss the message, Outlook offers another redirector in the BackStage - just select the Hotmail account in the account picker and the following prompt will appear: clip_image005_thumb.png Clicking on the Upgrade Now button will automatically start the download of the OLC 14.

2. Adding a @hotmail.com, @live.com or @msn.com accounts through the Add New Account dialog
Should you choose to add a new account that uses the @hotmail.com, @live.com or the @msn.com domain and OLC 14 is not installed, Outlook 2010 will prompt you to download and install it: clip_image007_thumb.jpg

Note: Should you choose not to install the OLC 14, Outlook 2010 will attempt to establish a connection to the server using the POP protocol. However this method only allows downloading your mailbox, while Outlook Connector also lets you view and update their Hotmail and Windows Live Inbox, Calendar and Contacts in Outlook.
