How can I open 2 separate Outlook 2007 profiles in separate windows
Posted on 2010-01-07
I have a user who manages to mailboxes in Outlook, before the user used to use Lotus Notes and loved the way she could function with the Notes mailbox.
Now that she has been migrated to Exchange 2007, she isn't happy with the way she has to manage her mailbox and the group mailbox, so therefore I need to look into ways in which she can work. The way I set her up was to add the group mailbox to her Outlook profile, but she didn't like the fact that any emails she deletes go to her personal deleted items or any emails that she sends go to her personal sent items.
Therefore I created 2 profiles so she could log into one or the other, but this didn't work for her either, so now I'm tasked with getting this to work for her, I thought of maybe installing Outlook on 2 separate drives, but this didn't work, i've even tried to start Outlook using the /profile profilename switch to open Outlook in 2 different windows, but this doesn't work either, so can anyone tell me how I can run 2 different profiles in separate windows on Outlook 2007??
This is a bit of a pain, seeing as in Lotus Notes, we could just open 2 separate mailboxes, and I've tried to explain to the user that this is the way Outlook works, but she isn't having it.
Help greatly appreciated.
