Solved Outlook looking for Exchange server

Specs: Vista Ultimate, SP2, 3.0Ghz/2Ghz
I prepared a PC for a friend of mine using a corporate imaging process. The OS is Windows XP SP3. The image process puts Microsoft Office on the PC. When I go in to configure Outlook, it wants you to enter an exchange server and it looks like you can't cancel that and enter something else. Is there a registry key that needs to be deleted in order for the Outlook setup to not look for an exchange server? We worked around the issue for now by using Outlook Express but we would like to use the full blown Outlook. Thanks.

Although the above is for "setting" an Exchange Server there is an alternative option for Internet Email (POP or IMAP). It's item 4 about one third the way down.

Hopefully your friend actually has a license for Windows XP for this computer. A computer I worked on for someone had a "corporate" install of the OS and Office, and evetually, both license numbers failed and required activation. Since the person didn't have either, the system was deactivated.
