Office XP works on Windows 7 but you must install it as the administrator. However Office XP Outlook does not work on Windows 7.

Follow my link to the hotfix for Outlook. It just will not save passwords.

What version of Windows 7 do you have? With Ultimate or Professional you can try installing under XP mode. The more I read the more unsure I am about this. Some people say it installed fine in Windows 7 and some people have issues.

Thanks everybody for all the info. The problem was that the computer came with a test sample that had to be deleted or removed from the computer, plus removing the one I had installed too. After removing all the Microsoft office applications then I could load my version completely and successfully working fine.

I had issues initially, however, instead of using IMAP I used POP3 for Aol and Gmail, I also played with the outgoing/incoming servers, and have been able to get both to work. They now send and receive with no issues and password is saved. I am using Office XP with Windows 7 and both email programs are now running flawlessly in Outlook 2002

AOL INCOMING SERVER: 110

AOL OUTGOING SERVER: 587

DO NOT CHECK SSL BOXES



GMAIL INCOMING SERVER: 995

OUTGOING SERVER: 587

CHECK THE SSL BOXES FOR BOTH

I hope this helps
