Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Outlook is designed to be a single-instance application. There's an unwieldy trick to get more than one that may, or may not, be useful.
I need to open more then one instance of Outlook at the same time with a different profile on each instance. Can this be done?
Yes and no. But most probably no.
Outlook is a single instance application so for any user session you can have one - and only one- instance of outlook running.
There is a 'trick' you can play. Windows XP will allow you to stay logged in as one user while logging in as another. Select Logoff and then Switch User. The first account remains logged in while the second account logs in as well. Each of these users can have their own copy of Outlook running. The caveat of course is that they must be different user accounts on the machine.
