    Parallels trouble with outlook
    so i've installed parallels and windows xp so I can continue to use outlook for work; however, when i start outlook and attempt to create my email account i continually get the error message:

    The action could not be completed. The connection to the Microsoft Exchange server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action.

    When I click ok outlook just shuts down completely.

    Any suggestions????

    Specs:
    Mac Pro 8x3.0ghz 12gb ram 8800GT , MBP 2.16 2GB Ram 17 inch.
    Don't know aobut why its not working, but I hear entorage for osx is pretty much the same as outlook, and its made by microsoft.

    I am unsure about parallels ability to connect to the internet that is why i made the suggestion.
