    Can I add a separate Outlook account for a user so they could log into their own account exclusive of mine to manage e-mail, contacts, calendar, etc? If so, how?

    Which version of windows are you using?

    If you are using Vista/Windows Mail, then things have changed.

    Under older versions you used to be abe to set up individual identities in Outlook express. That can be done under File, Identities. Each Identity can have a password etc, so taht when they log in, they only get their e-mails etc.

    This link should get you on the way on how to create identities etc

    Hi walnel

    Yes, you can create additional profiles in Outlook.
    Or you can create an additional Windows User account which would allow that user to have their own profile in Outlook.

    How to create a new e-mail profile in Outlook 2007 and in Outlook 2003


    If you create a second profile in Outlook under your Windows user account you will need to set Outlook to Prompt you for the profile to be used. You can password protect the Personal Folders in your profile if you don't want that profile to be accessed by others.

    If you create a second Windows User account for that person then Outlook can be configured to always use their profile.
