Default Start Outlook without an e-mail account


I have just installed MS Office 2019 Pro on a PC running Windows 10 (1903). When I try to open Outlook for the first time the program prompts me to set up an e-mail account, which I do not want to because I use another e-mail client (I only want to use Outlook's calendar and contacts features). If I do not enter my e-mail account data, Outlook shuts down.



How do I open outlook without having to set up an e-mail account? I assume that it will be possible to import my other data (contacts, notes, calendar entries) from an existing Outlook 2010 file, right?


Kind regards,
Andreas

Having Outlook associated with an account so that it works doesn't preclude the use of an alternative e-mail application for use with e-mail.

Outlook 2019 will open an Outlook 2010 PST file, if that is what you mean. Having opened it you can set it as the default data file.
