Welcome to Lesson 3 of the Basic Microsoft Outlook Tutorial. In this lesson we will cover Profiles. I hope you enjoy the lesson.

Profiles

Step 1: What is a profile?
A profile is way to have multiple accounts stored on a shared computer. Each profile has access to their own folders, messages, contacts, and e-mail accounts.

Step 2: Add a Profile

Open the Mail Setup dialog box by going to the control panel and then click on Mail. Click on Show Profiles and then click on Add. From here you need to enter in a name for the profile. When you are done you will be prompted to add an e-mail account. Follow the instructions from the previous tutorial on adding E-mail accounts.

Step 3: Switch Profiles

Open the Mail Setup dialog box. Click on Show Profiles. If you want to be prompted for a profile each time click on Prompt for a profile to be used. Now each time you open Outlook you will be prompted for which profile to use.

Step 4: Remove a Profile

Open the Mail Setup dialog box. Click on Show Profiles. Select the profile you want to remove and click Remove.
