Windows 7: Can't create Outlook New Data File (.pst)

Can't create Outlook New Data File (.pst)

Purchased a website and email domain. I have a fresh install of MS office 2010 and when trying to incorporate my pop3 mail everything works fine, even the test emails, but I can not save profile because i get an error, "This information service is not installed on your computer", so it wont let me create a new data file. when I search for an existing .pst none are found on hard drive. so I'm kinda stuck. I tried the same basic thing via control panel > mail > data file tab > add data file, but i get the same error. "This information service is not installed on your computer." I took a look at my add/remove windows features pane to see if maybe on windows install I missed some email protocols or something but I could not find any. did the same for the office 2010 install, checked to see if I did not install a key feature. still nothing.

**Edit: Tried using IMAP as well since this does not require .pst access but still same error. "This information service is not installed on your computer."

Have you had any previous installations of Office installed on the PC?
