I feel dumb asking this, but I need assistance adding a new email profile to Outlook 2007.  I am running Vista Ultimate and when I go to Outlook Help, it tells me to click on Start->Control Panel->User Accounts and choose Mail.  Problem is when I get inside User Accounts, there is no Mail option.  When I search for "Mail Profile" inside Control Panel, I don't get any results.  Is this hidden somewhere that I am missing?  I've looked under classic view and still can't find a Mail option.

Thanks.

If you are not setting up an exchange account you can also get to the account settings from inside outlook

In both my Vista's they have a Mail icon in control Panel just like XP... On the slow PC, it did not come up for about 40 seconds though...

Hi vsllc,

I already have Outlook configured for one account.  When I'm in it, I can see how to add additional accounts but not a new profile.  I don't want the one profile to hold multiple e-mail addresses (unless I can set a different default account to send reply e-mails from depending which e-mail account received it).

For your last comment:

You can setup a rule to handle messages from multiple accounts under the same profile.  To to Tools > Rules and Alerts.

Also, the path to Mail is Start > Control Panel > Switch to classic view > Mail

All,

I figured it out.  I am running a 64-bit version of Vista.  Mail is only 32-bit.  I had to go into View 32-bit Control Panel Items and there it was.  Not sure why this tip isn't in the general help file for Outlook 2007.
