    I'm trying to set up one XP account with multiple outlook2000 profiles. EAFIEDLER posted an answer back in 2001 bit it appears incorrect. The path to the registry seemed off. Anyway, I'm running outlook2000 as internet mail only (IMO) and can't figure this out. Please help

    Have you looked in Control Panel? You should have an E-Mail icon, the next box is Mail Setup - Outlook, last option is Profiles and if you click on that you can add profiles and set whether or not Outlook will prompt you for a profile or not.

    Hope this helps,

    You don't need a registry change to have Outlook use multiple profiles. It just needs to be configured with the Corporate configuration.

    Make sure you have access to the original source files for your version of Outlook or Office. At the end it will require this for Outlook to function.
    2. Go to Tools / Options
    3. Click on the Mail Delivery tab
    4. Click on Reconfigure Mail Support
    5. Select Corporate or Workgroup
    6. Click on Yes
    7. When Outlook is restarted it will look for the location of the Outlook source files. Make sure you have the same version that was installed available.

    Then you can configure Outlook to prompt which profile you want to use when you start it each time.
