Creating multiple unique accounts in Outlook 2003

Posted on 2004-11-29
Last Modified: 2010-04-08
I'm using XP Pro SP2 and Outlook 2003.  I need to configure two unique email accounts (both POP3) which need to remain separate. I do not want to have to log off of one XP account and log on to the other. I'd like to be able to switch by closing Outlook and restarting it, choosing the other account.

I've created a separate profile with it's own unique login, and also created a separate PST file with a unique name. But the new email account still downloads into my existing account. Is what I want to do possible in Outlook 2003?

    When you go to either of the profiles , go to tools > email accounts > view or change existing email accounts and see how many emails accounts are there..

    Each profile should have only ONE email account ..

    Try to put the PST file for each profile in a different location and check if that would help
