    Outlook 2010 and 2013 conflicting. Can't open 2013.


    HI Guys, tried uninstalling office 2010 to open Outlook 2013 when I got the two following errors:

    1: The resource that you are trying to use is located on an unsupported version of Microsoft exchange. Contact your email administrator for assistance.

    2: Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. Your Microsoft exchange administrator has blocked the version of Outlook that you are using. Contact your administrator for assistance.


    Does anyone know what these two errors are referring to and how I can fix it so I can start using Outlook 2013?

    Many thanks.

    Are you trying to connect to an Exchange mail server, e.g. one managed by your employer?
