Profiles and Data Files

1.19. What Is a Profile?

To support multiple users and multiple configurations per user, Outlook uses the concept of a profile. A profile is essentially a record of a particular user's e-mail accounts (and settings) and all the various settings that Outlook requires, such as the location of the data files that Outlook uses to store e-mails. (See FAQ 1.21 for more information about what is in a profile and data files.)

After you run Outlook the first time (covered in FAQ 1.1), a new profile is created. From that point forward, each time you start Outlook, this profile is loaded. (To modify this behavior, see FAQs 1.17, 1.30, and 1.31.)
