    Default How do I get seperate accounts with seperate mailboxs in Outlook?

    Is it possible to have a seperate mailbox when you use more that 1 account on Microsoft Outlook or Express? All the mail from my new account floods into my wife mailbox and vice versa. There has to be a way to seperate this, right?

    In outlook you can set it up to display a drop-down menu for you to choose which account to open. In OE you can go to File-->Identities-->Add New Identity. Once it is created you open up OE and go to File-->Switch Identity to go between the ones you have created.

    Hi,

    What you need to do is this, Close Outlook, on your desktop, right click on the outlook icon and choose "properties".

    On the new screen, click on "show Profiles" and then click add and give it a name.

    Now on the tick boxes choose "prompt for a profile to be used" and then click apply and ok.

    Now when you start outlook it will ask which profile to actually use. All you need to do then is setup each profile ( i.e. add in your wifes email account settings to one profile and your email settings to the other profile )

    Then your all set!

    Thanks Gary. I missed the response so didn't know he was still having problems.

    BTW... the step by step I gave above is for Outlook Express since that is what most folks use. As explained by Gary, however, it can be accomplished in Outlook as well since that is what we use at work.
