Is it possible to either run Outlook off of an external hard drive or to store the profile on an external hard drive?
I have one profile and I regularly use 2 computers (in different locations) and I need to have everything available to each. (Note: I have been doing this for years working with the old Entourage 2008 and just had the identity on the external drive.) Hoping to solve this so I can upgrade.

Hello RW99,

You should be able to do this by copying the OST, PST,or other mail information store, to the external device of choice (Jump Drive or External HDD) and pointing each Outlook client to the new location. Also, be aware that you may have to create a new profile within the Outlook client(s) to get this to work. For some reason, I have encountered sporadic difficulties when redirecting Outlook profiles in the past.

Just remember to create backups before you embark on this endeavor and make regular backups after you have it up and running. :)

Good Luck
