Chapter 17. Working with Mail Accounts > Creating and Using Profiles

Creating and Using Profiles

You can configure multiple email accounts within Outlook. In fact, you can even have every type of email account discussed in this chapter available in Outlook at once. However, if you have too many email accounts in Outlook, confusion might begin to set in. If you use Outlook for work, adding your personal POP3 account and mixing personal POP3 messages with might not be acceptable. The solution is to create multiple Outlook profiles. A profile contains one or more accounts, toolbar settings, connection settings, views, AutoComplete files, Navigation Pane settings, and other settings.

You can have multiple Outlook profiles on one machine. If you have a public or shared computer in the office, you can create an Outlook profile for each user of the computer. Another option is to create a profile for work and a profile for personal use, or you can create a network profile and an out-of-office profile that uses a VPN to connect to your corporate network. Creating a new Outlook profile is pretty simple and can be done in only a few steps.
