Re: HostName and LAN question
If you are manually setting the IP address DHCP addres doesn't matter, as DHCP is used for synamically assigning addreses.
DNS is important however, and I assume yuor outlook problem is cannot foid/connect to server.
try putting the address of your router into the DNS server settings box, your router should forward requests as necessary to the correct place.
also, if your router is able to perform DHCP, you'd probably do much better to turn off the manually assigned IP address and let the DHCP take care of everythin for you.
you still don't need to specify the server as the machine gets the address from the dchp server by sending out a broadcast packet, which the DCHP server responds to giving its address.
