I have mutliple EMAIL Accounts in my Outlook right now, no problem
What I want to do is use Outlook for the Kids ... without me having to log off of Windows.
How do I do that? I do not want to just add the Kids Email accounts to my Outlook.
I have a 3-4 year old version of Outlook but can upgrade/downfrade if necessary.
These are all Home Emails ... No Exchange. All POP & Imap email accounts.

You can add new profiles to Outlook and in the Control Panel, Mail icon (where you make new profiles), you can have it prompt for profile. That means Everyone must prompt, even the largest user. But you can do this and put the accounts in profiles as appropriate.

Hmm.. I would go in a different direction..
Im not too sure if this will work based on your version of outlook but you may want to try

Have the application by default log into the kids one..
Then when you want to run the program right click + shift on the outlook icon and select run as
type in your password and this should bring up a different set of options for you.

That way when you want to run outlook you need to type in your password.. otherwise the kids will load by default.

Profile selection (Mail properties) works from Outlook 2003 through to Outlook 2013 so it should work here.
