    I am desperate to have Outlook on my new Imac. I have now done an install of MS Office 2007 on XP Pro and Windows 7 however Outlook will display cannot connect to server when the whole VM or Boot Camp is online (I can browse etc). I have tried this in Fusion 2, Parallels and Boot Camp...same issue. This is on a sparkling new iMac 24in...The same attempt on my MBA v.A with XP+Parallels 3 has been successful...Is it an actual hardware fault or am I missing something? Please help!

    Are you sure your account settings are correct?

    Absolutely! Copied the settings line by line from my existing Outlook on the PC. Also, I can do this only the 1st time I open Outlook. It then displays "cannot connect to the internet and server" closes down and at any other launching of Outlook, it displays the same warning/messages and shuts down, so it doesn't seem to be an actual setting itself within Outlook...
