Windows 7 RC

THANK YOU! Thank You! Thank You!!!

I ran across the extraoutlook.exe before but I guess I didn't fully understand it or didn't set it up right the first time.


Download extraoutlook.exe and here's what I did:
I created a folder (extraoutlook at the root of C and put the extraoutlook.exe in the folder)

Next I went to a command prompt and navigated to my C:\extraoutlook folder then typed in the following line -
extraoutlook.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\outlook.exe" /profile "Gmail"

So it would look like this on the screen in your command window -
C:\extraoutlook\extraoutlook.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\outlook.exe" /profile "Gmail"

This is working for Windows 7 using Outlook 2010

Once Again - Thank You!!!

PS - To make it even easier once it's setup I did this:

Created a bat file in the C:\extraoutlook folder and created a shortcut of the bat file on my desktop.

Now just a double-click and I have my Gmail account open
If you don't know how to create a bat file here we go:
Open a new text document and
If you are using Windows 7 just copy and paste the following: extraoutlook.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\Outlook.exe" /profile "Gmail"
(My profile name is Gmail - replace it with whatever your outlook profile name is)
Save your new text document - rename it to whatever you want

Now you will have to change the extension of your new .txt file to .bat - now just double click the file and it will work.
