How to open two instances of Outlook 2003?

I have two email ids and so two profiles - one for my company and one for client. I have configured the respective profiles and mailboxes on my desktop. When I open one profile and click Outlook Icon again, it opens the same opened one, instead of asking for profile selection. That is, I cannot open and access both outlooks at a time. I need to exit the current and open a new instance and select the other profile for this. Let me know if there is any way if I can open outlook again and view both profiles. If so, please give me the instructions. Thanks in advance...

Good Morning,

Unfortunately, you cannot open 2 instances of Outlook with different profiles.

Take care,

As an addition, here's a link to an application you can obtain to run multiple instances of profiles: http://lifehacker.com/5060667/extraoutlook-runs-two-instances-of-outlook.

More information: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/10/10/download-extraoutlook-v12-to-simultaneously-open-two-instances-of-microsoft-outlook-in-windows-pc/.

Note: I have not tested or tried this application, so cannot vouch for it's effectiveness or stability.

Take care,

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I don't think you can have two profiles at once unless you close Outlook and point to the other profile each time.  Please read more about it here:

Good Luck.
