Is there any way to have two copies of Outlook on the same computer and desktop? Hubby and I were both using Incredimail, but he kept sqawking about it so I set up Outlook for him to use for his email. Incredimail has been really BUGGY the past six months or so and now I'm thinking I wouldn't mind having a simple email fetcher like Outlook for myself.

So can two copies of it be up and running on the same computer?

Thanks!

You can't have multiple copies of Outlook on the same computer, but you don't need more than one. What you do need is two Profiles!

Control Panel > Mail. Choose profiles and add a new profile for yourself or your "Hubby". Check the radio button to have outlook ask which profile to use and BAM - separate email access. You will have to add your accounts and contacts to the new profile, but it will work just as if there are two copies of Outlook on the computer!

So it's basically what we had with Incredimail ... two accounts, one email program.

Bingo!
When you start the program it will ask which profile you want to use and load the one chosen.
