I am set up using AT&T@home(cable modem)with outlook in the Corp/work. option so that it will propt for a profile(I have 2).My problem is that while each profile only checks its own address once the message gets to the inbox it is shared with the other profile.Sent Items,deleted,contacts,etc have the same problem.Outgoing mail is sent under whichever profile you are under,so at least one thing works.

hi john
goto file--open special folder--open exchange folder and enter the second name, if its shared, you'll be able to add it to your personal settings.

I hope i understood you correctley...

cyber-bulldog,  I'm not being given the option of special folder under file.Haven't been able to find the exchange folder anywhere either any other suggestions? Thanks

Commented:
Take a look under Tools > Services > Personal Folders.  I will bet that each profile is pointing to the same file.

If you want completely seperate PST files, then remove the Personal Folders service from one of the definitions and re-add it.

Note:  It will most likely be easier to do this from Start > Control Panel > "Mail" or "Mail and Fax" applet since Outlook/MAPI will need to be completed closed before making modifications a profile.

Sorry... menu command should be Tools > Services > Highlight Personal Folder service > Properties.  Then you get the details. ;)
