Multiple Exchange Profiles on same Computer?

Is it possible to set up multiple Exchange profiles on the same computer?  A shared computer for instance where one person might log in using Outlook one time during the day and another person at a different time?  I assume it is possible but if there is one thing I have learned with software, it's not to assume :-).

I just want to make sure it is OK before I attempt it.  The Exchange is hosted in case that matters.  More importantly perhaps, people would be working under the SAME Windows login.

Thank You

    Yes, you can have different Outlook Profiles for different users.

    How you configure them is somewhat dependent on what version of Outlook you're running, but the most likely way is to use Control Panel|Mail.

    There should be a section on profiles (in Outlook 2007, it's called Show Profiles).

    Simply Click Add to create a new one.

    Don't forget to select "Prompt for a profile to be used" so that it asks each time you start Outlook.
