I have an outlook account (outlook 2007) that has many folders in it.  A new person is being hired with a different email address and they will be using this computer.  They want to keep all the folders and the emails inside that are associated with this email address.  If I delete the email account and add the new user's email account will all the folders be deleted?  If so how would I setup this scenario so that I can setup the new email address get rid of the old one and still keep the folders?

Two different ways.


create a new profile, Add the new Email account, import the mail from the older account, delete the old profile



add the new email account, using the same outlook file, set this as the primary account and then delete the older email account.
