Default Cannot Use Outlook

I inherited a notebook from someone who resigned. I do not have his password for Outlook 2007 and cannot get into it. I would like to use Outlook on this computer so that I can keep all my work activities in one place. I figure that the best fix is to 1) reinstall Outlook or 2) reinstall everything. I have reinstalled XP on different machines but have not reinstalled Vista. Is my logic correct? Will Vista allow me to do these reinstalls? (I have the password to get onto the machine as Administrator).

Thanks

The email program that comes with Vista is Windows Email.

Does the computer have this? It rums much the same as Outlook.

Outlook has far more features. Windows Email is a basic email program.

Your company (i assume), has not done anything to the laptop to allow you to set it up for your own use and they've left user details of the resigned person.

If it were me, i'd be reformatting an inherited computer quite thoroughly.
