I have a question regarding Outlook 2010 (or 2007) email connection config. Normally, for example when you want to use outlook to check out mail from Gmail, you can manually config the connection (enter the account name, password, smtp address, port,....) then it's all set.
However when I join the new company, all the computers (all run Windows 7) in the company network must join the domain, and after I installed Outlook, it (magically - to me) got all the account name, connection settings, and the email started loading. I don't have to enter information into Outlook.
Problem is, I don't like using Outlook at all, and I love checking and sending through a web-based email (like Gmail). Gmail has a wonderful feature to allow user enter smtp information so it can retrieve and send email through the company server. Before, I always have the information to feed in Gmail, but now with the automatic email settings from the joined domain computer, I don't know where to get such kind of information.
Anyone can help? My appreciation :)
