    I'll try and keep this simple. I am running Outlook 2003. I have two profiles setup. One for my personal e-mail and one for my company e-mail (using Exchange/RPC over HTTP).

    I want to create a shortcut that will open Outlook and automatically open the Exchange profile so I don't have to choose each and every time I open Outlook which profile I want to use.

    However, I want my default profile to remain my personal e-mail profile so when I open Outlook it opens that e-mail.

    I didn't feel like searching for this one on my own.

    Thank you.

    Never mind. I figured it out.

    outlook /profile profilename

    No way to delete a thread anymore?

    From what I understand, the best method to do this is to enable Fast User Switching.

    You can get prompted to choose your profile, or automatically open a profile, and these are the only options (best to my knowledge).

    Since Outlook is profile-specific to your computer as well, you could enable fast-user switching, or perhaps run some type of software to let you switch between desktops (and profiles), you could do it that way.

    User 1-Set default to access RPC over HTTP email
    User 2-Personal

    I know that might be a pain, but that's the only way I would know how

    EDIT: heh, oops, I was doing this for memory, I don't have Outlook here :)

    Glad you figured it out!
