I have been searching the web for a few hours and searched this site. I am simply trying to create two completely separate businesses in Outlook 2010, 32 bit with different emails, calenders, task lists etc. I don't want them to share the same data or anything like that. How do I accomplish this? I know this must be simple but I cannot figure it out. Please help a fella out. Thank you!

You have two options - you can make two profiles, one for each acccount or you can add both accounts to one profile and use the default setup of 1 pst per account. Outlook 2010 will reply using the account whose folders you are viewing. If you add two accounts in one profile its a little easier because you don't need to close and reopen outlook.

To make two profiles go to Control panel and search for Mail - make one profile for each account and set outlook to ask which profile when you start it.

Thank you Diane, I tried to follow your advise but was having a hard time finding the Control Panel. I finally did a search for that and found this site- http://support.risualblogs.com/blog/2012/01/16/outlook-2010-mail-control-panel-location/. Basically I ended up cutting and pasting the location he provided in my run box and finally got to the Control Panel.

The following is the relevant information from that site I linked above-

Here is the location of the mail control panel just in case you cannot see it in the list of control panels that are available:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\MLCFG32.CPL

OR

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\MLCFG32.CPL

You can simply copy and paste the lines above into a run box to display the mail setup control panel:


After I did that, everything was easy to do. Thank you so much! I don't know why I couldn't find the Control Panel in Outlook when I had it open. I still haven't found it from Outlook. Only when I did the search in my run box.

Anyhow, I got it set up the way I wanted and I appreciate your help.
