Email Migration

I'm performing an email migration and I was wondering is there a way to force outlook to create a new profile on startup?

Depending on your need, you may want to look at a software solution to this issue. Outlook profiler can create a new profile and more.

Yes there is:

% reg.exe delete HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Profiles\Outlook /f
% reg.exe add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Profiles\Outlook

This will delete the default profile called "Outlook", and recreate it with no settings. The next time you re-run Outlook, it will launch the configuration wizard.

Now this is for Outlook 2013.

You didn't say what version(s) of Outlook you are working with, but modifying the above should still work.
