Two email accounts


D

Dan

I am using Outlook 2007. Is it possible to set it up so that it can access
two different email accounts, have two different sets of folders, and two
different contact lists?

Right now, I use Outlook 2007 for one account and Outlook Express for the
other. That way I can have both executing at the same time and be alerted
whenever either one receives mail. I would prefer to do it all in Outlook if
possible.

Thanks for your help!

To be TOTALLY separate you would need two Outlook profiles, but you can't
have two running at the same time.
Yes you can set up separate pst files with separate contacts, but you would
need to set up a rule to move messages received to the other file, and to
move the sent items as well. Gets a trifle complicated. Is there any
overweening reason why they need to be so separate?

Just create the two accounts in Outlook and tell Outlok to deliver the mail
received (and sent) by one account to be put in folders separate from the
folders of the other.. Tools>Account Settings>E-mail Accounts
