    I have Windows XP Home Edition and Outlook XP. I would like to set up a second Outlook.pst file for my wife. I know she could share my file but it would be cleaner if we each had our own separate copy. Would this cause problems for Outlook if the files are in separate directories?

    You need to have seperate profiles in order to do this. Make a seperate login in XP for each of you and you should be able to create your own profile after that.

    Hi, Rockn. Thanks for the fast response! And thanks for the advice. I had a feeling it wouldn't be that easy.
    I had separate profiles set up on our old PC (WIN98) and it was such a nightmare I vowed never to do that again!

    XP is a lot more "user" friendly as far as profiles go than 98 ever dreamed of being. If you haven't tried it yet in XP, you should give it a go, I think you'll be pleased.

    regards
