Understanding Profiles

Windows Messaging keeps the details about your information services, Personal Folders, and Personal Address Book in a profile, whose settings are stored in the Registry. Before you can use Windows Messaging for messaging, you must have a profile. In fact, everyone using Windows Messaging on a particular machine needs their own profile pointing to their own Microsoft Mail or Internet account, Personal Folders, and Personal Address Book.

Note

Windows Messaging uses the same interface and offers many of the same functions as Exchange, Microsoft's client-server messaging and groupware application. However, you cannot connect to an Exchange server with Windows Messaging; you must use the Exchange client. Also, Windows Messaging lacks some of the features of Exchange, notably automatic signatures and rules-based actions for incoming messages.
