Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
You cannot install Outlook more than once, but Outlook does have a feature that supports multiple account configurations.
I use Outlook 2002/XP for personal email rather than Outlook Express. I would like to install a separate (additional) copy of Outlook with its own folders & contacts to use for business only. Is this possible?
But don't despair. Outlook has a feature designed to do exactly what you want.
This is a perfect use of Outlook mail profiles.
Go to Control Panel, Mail, Show Profiles. Each profile can be configured with different email accounts and different storage folders. In addition, you can have Outlook prompt you for which profile to use when it starts up.
I use multiple profiles on my laptop. When I'm at home I use a profile that includes all my email accounts. When I'm on the road I use a different profile that only checks a couple of critical accounts. When I'm traveling with my wife I use yet a third profile that includes my wife's email account as well.
