Default BB Desktop and Outlook profiles

Please Login to Remove!

I share 1 computer with another person, an iPhone user. So we need completely separate Outlook contact/calendar/notes.

If I set-up a separate Outlook profile for the two of us, when I download BB Desktop and go to set-up my BB, will it give me the option of choosing which Outlook profile to sync with, or do I need to create a new Windows User account to keep things separate?

I tried doing this with iTunes, but it does not give me the option of choosing between Outlook profiles.

Thanks.

If you set it to force you to select the profile, it will. IIRC though, if a profile is already opened by, say Outlook, it will use the active profile. Personally, I'd use separate Windows accounts (and log out when not actively using the PC) unless I trusted the other person to not make mistakes.

Seperate Windows accounts does sound like the best plan. Thanks for your help.
