OL2003 (Exchange) and OE6 running in the same PC

We are currently upgrading our OS from W98SE to WinXP. Our VP is
using Netscape v4.67 with dial-up to access his personal email from
the ISP and Novell Groupwise for his internal corporate email.

With the new WinXP, he will be authenticate to Active Directory and
using Exchange 2003 (Outlook 2003) for corporate email. (Yep, no more Groupwise!!)

I want to move him away from Netscape to OE6 (built-in with XP pro).
During my test in the lab, for some reasons I can't have OE6 and
OL2003 running at the same time. (I can launch either one but not
both at the same time) He wants OE6 as his default email client (he
doesn't use newsgroup) and he does not require to share the address
book between the mail program.

Are there any solution to make both programs running at the same time?

Thanks

They can both run at the same time but only one can be used with Exchange -
Outlook, not Express.

Why are you using a crippled, limited email program when you have Outlook
(comes with Exchange) for mail, calendar, collaboration, tasks, etc?

That's fine. I expect only Outlook for exchange and OE for dial-up
ISP.

Well, if there is a way I can launch Outlook twice at the same time
with one going to ISP and the other goes to Exchange (they don't need
to share the contact), I am happy to move out to OL (anyway but stay
with Groupwise or Netscape)

Outlook can do both.

You can't have two instances of Outlook using different profiles.

That's why I need to have OE and OL separate. Is there a way I can
have OE6 (dial-up) and OL2003 (Exchange) working/running at the same
time?

Certainly. I do that all the time. Just run them both. They shouldn't
conflict in any way.
