Want to add second email to Outlook for business use

I want to get a second email acct for a business I want to try. How do people manage 2 email accts from within the same Outlook? What do other people do and how to go about doing this for like using for a business? Is there a website, PDF, etc body of knowledge that shows best practices for handling Outlook emails and small bus accounting, setting up new business infrastructure and PC setup? Do I have to do something with profiles and where is there info on how to do that for setting up a business email account and my personal email acct on same PC? And what about data files for the new business. I don’t want them co-mingled with my regular personal pictures, Craigslist, family, etc. folders.

Hope above not confusing for you. Any and all reply info very much appreciated. New to site—first post.
 
And then, you can also setup a Folder called something like "Business Emails". You can setup a Rule that directs all appropriate emails there.

I just add my business accounts to my existing Profile. That is what most people do.

I think a separate Profile would be like a whole separate user. It sounds good but in practice not very productive because you would be constantly switching Profiles. I happen to think one of the advantages of Outlook is to be able to do both Personal and Business.

And not really suggesting it, but remember that you can always just use a separate program for personal (or just keep it online ie web-based). There is also the email client in Windows.

Agree, it is more convenient to keep several business accounts on one profile.

+1000. We used to need to do this with multiple Exchange accounts and it was a PITA.

Outlook does a good job at keeping the accounts separate - but if its a problem, use a different app for personal. Windows Mail, Outlook Pre (pre = beta) or eM client are all good mail apps.
