    Questions about e-mail accounts (OL 2003)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    I have some questions about e-mail accounts and MS-Outlook 2003:

    1) When you make a new e-mail account, Tools | E-mail Accounts | Add a new e-mail account and then you get the E-mail Accounts dialog box and you choose options. Where is this information stored? Can I backup the file that contains this information and use it on different machines?

    2) Is there a limit of how many accounts you can have?

    Thanks for any information.

    Cordially

    1) In the registry, in HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindows Messaging SubsystemProfiles.

    2) I don't know of a limit, but I'm sure something will go wrong if you create 100,000 accounts.

    As to Number 1, <font color=blue>HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindo ws NTCurrentVersionWindows Messaging SubsystemProfiles</font color=blue>

    Do you think that if I arrange the accounts there, they would be processed in the sequence I want?

    Thanks

    Maybe this will help E-Mail Processing in Outlook 2002 This is fairly similar to the way you can do it in Outlook '07
    Thanks John

    Re: Questions about e-mail accounts (OL 2003)

    The account order is also available in the first dialog under Tools | Email Accounts | View or change existing.... But recently I remember having problems where my two accounts were not processed in the order they appeared, so I renamed them in ASCII order and that worked (like this, not rocket science):
    "1_ispaccount"
    "2_gmailaccount"
