    Switching to Outlook 2000 from 2002 (2002/2000)

    I am presently planning to switch to Outlook 2000 from Outlook 2002 because of problems we've encountered in trying to have two different e-mail profiles or accounts (one for me, one for my bride). We are running Windows 98 SE which, I am told, is likely contributing to the problem. We want to be able to open Outlook in our respective Windows profiles and view only our own mail, contacts, & addressbooks. To make this switch what files would I have to save in order to retain our e-mail addresses & contacts? What about being able to retain the existing & saved messages or would that be a lost cause?

    This Outlook installation will also be synching with my Dell X-30 Axim running Windows Mobile 2003 SE. Any known problems there?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by jscher2000 on 05-May-05 16:37. )</P>I think you can create separate profiles in Outlook 2002 to accomplish what you want. Try using the Mail control panel. Yes, you may find that you CAN open one another's mail, but you should get the choice and how you handle it is up to you. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Added: After you create the new profile, you Inbox and everything else will be blank. Use File>Open>Outlook Data File to access your existing PST file and copy or move whatever you like to the "new" PST.

    Thank you VERY much for the info. I'll keep it available for when I get to this particular task. I'll definitely give it a try before uninstalling and re-installing.

    Thanks again,
