Greetings,

Is it possible to run two TOTALY seperate copies of Outlook?

I'd like to separate my accounts and mailboxes in ways that 1 copy just can't do...

Thanks a million...

It is better to create 2 separate accounts. each can be protected by password and each has its own pop server information.

Will this work ?

Maybe you could try runining 2nd copy as another user. Create another windows user account, logon, configure outlook, etc.., log back to your "original" account, create 2nd shortcut for outlook, properties, run as .. (type new account user/pass).

So...,

I'm running MS2K prof. and have fiddled around with some of the properties in the new shortcut but it always seems to run with my main account.

Any ideas?

Only one instance of Outlook (the application that exports the Outlook Object Model) can run at a time in one user context using a single profile. Any attempts by the same user to logon using a second profile results in joining the existing Outlook session. Attempts to start another copy of Outlook (or the Outlook Object Model) from a different user context (for instance, an application that impersonates a different user, such as an Windows NT service) fails with unpredictable results ranging from; a modal dialog box to an application error causing Outlook to stop responding to the system.
