    Opening more than one instance of Outlook (Outlook 2000)

    With word you can use winword.exe /w to open a new instance of Word (using the /w switch in a command line). Is there a way to do the same thing with Outlook?

    Thanks!!

    Hi, Troy ~

    Can't you do this by right-clicking the 'Inbox' and selecting 'Open in New Window'?

    Almost, but not quite. It opens another window for the inbox, or whichever folder you chose, but not another instance of OL. If you use XP, and do the 3-finger salute to pop up the task manager, the "Applications" tab shows a "task" for each open OL window, but under the "Processes" tab only one instance of outlook.exe is active.

    From memory, this has been (indirectly) touched on in other threads here, and the answer is "no". (But that's my memory.)
