Starfield Technologies Outlook Setup Tool took down my email. I spent most of the day trying to remove/fix it. In the end, I bought a new version of Outlook to save time. This is far from the first problem you've caused me. If you load that damned thing into my system again, I am going to call my website admin, who recommended me to you years ago--I am a long time customer--and suggested that he take the business of the more than 500 sites he has built and maintains elsewhere. This is ridiculous.
