Multiple Profile


In this blog post, we will learn what an Outlook email profile is and how to create multiple email profiles in the Microsoft Outlook email client.

What is an Outlook Email Profile?

An email profile is what Outlook uses to remember which email account is configured within MS Outlook. It is made up of email accounts, data files, and information about where your email is stored.

Whenever a user starts Microsoft Outlook, the default created profile will run, and most of the time, people generally use only one profile, but in some cases, users want to use two profiles, one for work and another for personal use. In this scenario, you can create multiple user profiles so that the data will be completely separated.

To switch between the profiles, you need to exit MS Outlook and then select the appropriate profile.
