Windows 7: Possible to set up two instances of Outlook with separate acct confgs?

18 Oct 2014   #1

Possible to set up two instances of Outlook with separate acct confgs?

I like Outlook, finally preferably to Thunderbird now, as I have become accustomed to it from office use.

I would like to use it for my personal emails also, but do not want any mixing of work and personal - when I bring it up for work, I don't want anything from the personal side appearing at all, and vice-versa.

Can two separately configured clients run, and if so, if anyone has done so successfully, how would you advise I proceed?

Real simple Bruce, just look up "outlook profiles" in the internet, it is a perfect solution.

Glad I could help you, seems many people viewed your post but no one had a clue.
