Free Hotmail Account

I have successfully connected my free Hotmail account to Outloook [2002].  
Why is everyone saying that free Hotmail accounts do not work with 
outlook?...Its the only one that has worked for me.  I have tried yahoo with 
POP and gmail with POP and neither have been connected successfully.  What is 
POP anyway? And what are the benefits of having a POP account connected to 
Outlook rather than a regular Hotmail account?  Im quite confused because 
when i followed the exact instructions given to me by gmail's help centre, 
nothing happened.  What are the step by step instructions to connect my gmail 
account to Outlook.  (No links please...they arent very helpful.)

Because, for the most part, it's true.  A few free Hotmail accounts continue 
to work with Outlook (mine, for example, and apparently yours), but the 
general rule is that they do not and the ones that still do may no longer do 
so in the near furture.

Then you've done something wrong.  Thousands of people use Outlook with 
either of those mail servers.

Post Office Protocol.  Older that Hotmail.  If you're happy with Hotmail, 
good for you.  Don't use a POP account.

Thank you for your help.  I am now informed.  As for the yahoo/gmail 
accounts, i guess i will just wait until my hotmail one no longer works to 
worry about them! Hahaha.

Changing account associated with mailbox?
The ADC has associated a couple of mailboxes with accounts that I'd sooner not have them associated with. Am I right in thinking I can delete/disconnect the mailbox, then use the cleanup agent to reconnect the mailbox to a new AD account?

Using Accounting Underlines with Percent Symbols
I'm having a problem using accounting underline with percentages. The accounting underline does not underline the % symbol. Is there any custom percent formatting that could be used with accounting underlines that would make the underline extend under the percent symbol? Accounting underlines only extend to the numbers. Regular underlines extend to the % character. So in your case just switch to regular underlines would be my suggestion. -- HTH...

Renaming a user account
I have a user account (Joe) that no longer works here. I disabled his account. A new worker is taking his place (Fred). I want to rename Joe's account to Fred in active directory.

Change of Account Manager should not change other records.
When changing the Account Manager on an Account, CRM currently changes the ownership of the different types of records attached to that Account to the same value as the Account Manager. CRM needs to be changed to where the Account Manager field can be changed for the Account, but the ownership of the other record types remain independent of the Account. In most cases we do not want this ownership to change. For example, quite often and in most cases the owner of an Opportunity will not be the same as the Account that owns the Opportunity. Also, on Opportunities that have been closed...

Updating Accounts
About a month ago I opened my Money program and saw that it had deleted the sign-on info I had saved for Home Depot and MBNA. Since then, it has not allowed me to set up online updates.

I have called support, talked to support online, they closed the session every time as unresolved. WHAT'S THE DEAL? I am seriously looking into trashing Money and using Quicken! ...

balanced account snafu
My wife balanced the checking account last month - all went well. When we went to balance it again this month, the beginning balance offered by Money was high by $207. We decided to enter the correct information this time, and not have Money do anything with the $207 difference. We know that the entered transactions are all correct and no transactions are missing. Can anyone tell me what the best way is to get Money back in line with the paper statement? I have the same problem. It seems to me what matters is the "balance this period" and not the previous balance, but it se...

401K account

Renaming user account
We recently let one of our sales guys go. He has been replaced so I renamed the account as alot of people normally do. However in CRM Im not able to add him because the old user still exists.

Im thinking this is just a synching/timing issue and will be handled in a few minutes.

Business Contacts
Just found this site - exciting to learn from the experts! I have a long list of business contacts sorted by Accounts. Unfortunately, I clicked the Accounts column while in the Business Contacts view, and all those accounts disappeared from the column. Now all my contacts are ungrouped (over 3,000). Each individual contact still retains its Linked Account designation, but those accounts are no longer organized via that filter. Can anyone help with bringing back that category to my Business Contacts view? I hope this explanation makes sense. Thanks so much in advance. . Sub...

NYS tax free week
In NY state there is a "tax-free" week on clothing & footwear. This occurs a few times/yr. How do I put this into the RMS system? Thanks Inventory Wizard has a task to Assign Item Sales tax.

You can select items in Inventory Wizard by department, category, etc.. so it should be pretty easy to add and remove the tax. -- Glenn Ada...
