3. Create an additional profile

If you want to use Outlook to connect to more than one email account, you can do that. If you have more that one account connecting to an Exchange server, you have to create an additional profile for each account. If only one of your accounts is an Exchange account (like Nexus, giving you access to (shared) calendars and address books etc), you only have to create an additional profile if you prefer to keep your Nexus account in a separate Outlook profile.

To create a new Outlook 2007 profile, you must first close down Outlook. Then open the Windows Control Panel by clicking [Start->Settings->Control Panel]. Double-click the Mail icon to open the Mail Setup screen:
