Is it Ok to have more than 30 outlook profiles on one PC?

I have some locations with more than 20 outlook profiles on a PC! Is that OK? or eventually will cause problems?

Individual Outlook profiles are OK. I have had close that that number when dealing with various mailbox issues and managing some shared resources.

Each one is loaded alone and the others are unused (not running) until you launch them. Since they are not running they are not taking up any resources besides hard drive space for the local mailbox cache for instance.

You will be fine.  I worked in a call center and in the training room it wasn't unusual to have machines with over 50 -100 Windows and Outlook profiles on them.

Eventually performance did suffer but there were dozens and dozens of profiles before I had to do a mass cleaning.

Hi Rezwan,

Generally multiple users on a PC would each have their own separate windows user account and accordingly any data would be separated in that each user would only see data applicable to them. You would then create an outlook profile under that windows log-on with the email account that is specific to that person.

There is only one user profile for windows, but multiple outlook profiles
Matt MinorTechnical Systems AnalystCommented:
Outlook will handle A LOT of profiles, and as stated above it should be just fine. Are the accounts configured in these profiles belonging to you? Or are they multiple accounts for various people?

Best-practice would certainly suggest that having multiple Windows User Accounts (and thus, user-profiles) created for each user if there are multiple users would be better, especially from a management perspective.
