Need help setting up new email profile in Outlook 2007 on Vista Ultimate OS.

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,
Just open outlook 2007 application, it should guide you through the profile creation.

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.
