Opening two Outlook profiles at the same time

by Shijaz Abdulla on 19.10.2008 at 09:52

One common query that administrators have is the matter regarding opening two Outlook profiles simultaneously. As we all know, only one Outlook instance (profile) can be open on a PC at any given time. You can of course, open more than one Exchange mailbox inside the same Outlook instance – however this leads to (user) complications of which ‘from’ address to use when responding to email.

Jason Geffner has come up with the smart little utility that helps you run two instances of Outlook at the same time. It’s called ExtraOutlook. Try it out.

    This is awesome. I’ve been looking for a way to do this. Thanks for the information. I downloaded the file, tested it, created a batch file to save time, changed the batch file icon to a nicer one, and boom! I’ve got another Outlook exchange connection running. Sweet!
