Hello,

Thanks for reading our question!  Is it possible to install Outlook in two different locations on the SAME machine?  Such that, one is totally separate from the other?  For Example, Outlook running from Folder A and Outlook running from folder B?  Unique data files and unique everything else; basically installing the software in twolocations on the same machine to yeild two freestanding autonomous programs?

Many thanks,

Yunkaa

Hi Yunkaa,
     I don't think it is possible to have two seperate instalations per se, but you can set up 2 independant profiles, each with their own data and settings independant of the other. Is that what you are looking to do? If so you can set them up from the Control Panel "Mail" applet.

God bless!

Sam is right but I donot think you can open 2 seperate profiles at the same time. Going to Control panel --> Mail ---> show profiles , you can create 2 profiles and let us say A and B.
You should be able to open either A or B at one time ..

Yunkaa,
Here are a couple of other things you might consider:

If you set up another user account on your computer; when you log into that account, Outlook is going to run just like it was a freshly installed copy.

To do this, just go to 'Control Panel' and select 'User Accounts' and from there select 'Create a New Account'. (This works great if you are sharing your computer with someone else, that way they can retain ALL of their own personal settings seperately)

One other thing, if you are wanting to use Outlook for more than one email account you can do this with one installation. You can even set up rules so the email from different accounts arrive in different folders.
