Created new profile, how do I share existing contacts/calendar?

Not open for further replies.


Outlook version
Email Account
I created a new profile in Outlook 2003 for a new "business" email address for myself (in addition to my original "personal" email), but cannot figure out how to have my existing Calendar and Contacts data appear in that profile as default. I was able to import the data, but obviously that doesn't work as it is only a static "picture" of the data file when I imported it, and is not updated when update the data in my original profile. Is there a way to make this happen?

Thanks for any ideas you can share!
You have two options - one profile, both accounts. This works in all versions, but it works really well in Outlook 2010 as the 'default' email account is the one you are viewing (when you use a separate pst for each account).

In your case, open the other pst in the new profile as a second pst - File, open, outlook data file.

See Sharing outlook on one computer if you need more information. There are addins that can copy appointments & contacts between the two data files. See Sharing calendar and contacts for a list - CodeTwo's FolderSync will keep the folders in sync (and is free).
