Default Outlook 2003 - BBerry question

Please Login to Remove!

My wife and I have 1 computer at home which I work off of & we share for personal. Problem is I use Outlook 2003 for all my work & personal contacts. Just bought my wife her 1st BBerry. How do I put all of her contact information into Outlook without mixing it with my info. Is there anyway to set up her own Outlook file which will have NOTHING to do w/ all my contact, email, task, information. I know this is a BB forum but eventhough this is an Outlook question it relates to BB being that I will be syncing it with BBerry.

Thank you in advance for all help & opinions!

Assuming you have windows XP (home or pro shouldn't matter), the easiest way is just to create a new account for her and set up her outlook stuff there, otherwise it is creating a new profile in outlook (settings/control panel/mail new profile.)

Yes I am using WinXP. You are referring to creating a new account in Windows. How do you do that?

settings->control-panel->user accounts, add user.
If you have fast user switching enabled (don't recall exactly where that is) you can have both accounts logged in at the same time, although only interactive in one. Fast user switching would be indicated by having icons for different users when you lock the screen vs. having a two field window asking for username and password.

You don't need to do that, just set up a new mail profile and point to her file. then set Outlook to prompt you which profile to use when you start it.

Control Panel > Mail > Show profiles. Create a new one for her. At the bottom, select to have Outlook prompt you. (btw, the default profile is called MS Office Outlook or something, so that would be the one you would choose when opening Outlook).

Another option is to add another .pst file to the current profile and set Intellisync to sync with that pst's folders instead of yours.
