Problem linking my msn account to gmail

I tried adding my msn account to my gmail account so I could check all
of my email accounts at gmail.  Everytime I try to add it I get a
error message that says "connection timed out".  Does anyone know how
to work around this to make linking this account successful?

Wrong group, we're just outlook, not msn or gmail support :)  I didn't think 
gmail could access msn accts because they aren't pop3.

You can't add one account to another account.  Please describe exactly what 
you did.  Include your Outlook version and what account types you're using 
for each account.

how to transfer an A/R balance from one account to another
We've been operating with one set of A/R accounts. Now our company has 4 profit centres and the-powers-that-be want an A/R report for each profit centre. Fair enough. So we set up Parent-Child accounts. The problem is that there are many accounts in the 'old' A/R with balances. Is there a nice simple way of transferring - or balance forwarding - amounts from the 'old A/R to one or more of the 4 profit centres? I see via "HELP" that I can balance forward for the new accounts, but that still leaves the 'old' A/R accounts with balances that need to b...

How do I stop MSN Messenger from defaulting to Outlook and go to .
How do I stop MSN from using Outlook as my email address and instead use a hotmail or yahoo address as an alternative. It would be preferable to be able to choose between them if possible This is an MSN Messenger question; not Outlook. Anyway; Logoff MSN and login with a different address.

Troubleshooting "Rules"
Hi, I am trying to cope with spam by creating rules from messages in my Junk folder. I am hilighting the message and then selecting either the "From" option or the "Subject" option. All seems to go well up to that point. However . . . After clicking OK and then selecting "run this rule in this folder now", the only message that is deleted is the one that I am using to create the rule, instead of going through the whole Junk folder, as expected.

Problem opening .vsd file with included .vss file with Visio viewer
Dear lazyweb, We have a .vsd file that gives the following error when opening it with Internet Explorer / Visio viewer: The Microsoft Office Visio Viewer was not able to complete the operation. Other visio files don't give the error. The file opens in Visio. I can see that the .vsd file also opens two .vss files. I can see that in the Window menu. I googled and found out that .vss are "stencil" files - are these embedded inside a .vsd file?? One of the .vss files is probably a "visio default" file, the other is most certainly created here on site, judging by the filena...

Once you've done that, you can set your plain text font to verdana 9. Ok that worked but what if I want to ke...

Attachment Blocking Problem
Hi, We want to be able to block certain attachment types for our OWA users, (i.e. exe, bat, cmd etc) as these can harbour viruses. The reason for this, is that between our Exchange Front End Server and the client on the Internet we use an SSL encrypted tunnel (bridged by ISA Server Std 2004) in the middle and we are unable to scan inside the tunnel for viruses. We have implemented the recommended solution, as per knowledgebase article 830827, the Microsoft Exchange 2003 Client Access guide and the technet article at the following URL:

It doesn't matter if the header...
