Moving Outlook account to another Windows log-in user account

I currently use 2 different Windows log-in User accounts, and have an email 
account I access on each of them, 1 for work and 1 for home.  I did this 
because my work environment is wireless.

I'm sick of switching back and forth between Windows user accounts to check 
work email vs. personal email.  How do I transfer one Outlook email account 
to another Windows user account on the same computer.  I'm sure I could just 
add an email account on one or the other, and delete it from the existing 
User Account, but I'd like to retain all of my existing folders and content.  
Then I'll need to figure out how to have 2 different email accounts under 1 
profile that operate separately with their own respective folders, etc.

So reply to the reply, say how it failed to help you (in other words, what 
didn't work with the reply) and seek more assistance in that thread, rather 
then trying a new newsgroup where we could just end up giving you the exact 
same advice since we haven't followed the original thread to see what you've 
already been told to do.

outlook.exe not terminating
I'm running Office XP with Outlook 2002 under Windows XP Pro, current as of today, except that I have reverted the IE update to the previous version of mshtml.dll that scrolls correctly (this has had no effect on the problem I am about to describe).

Vista doesn't actually support Outlook 2002 or older. Outlook Express is part of Internet Explorer but with the advent of Vista, it was switched to Windows Mail. There is no more Outlook Express. You could attempt however to create a profile using workgroup or c...

Outlook 2003 and "Check Names"
Hi, We are testing Outlook 2003 at our office now and there is one very frustrating "feature" that is bugging all of us. When we create a new e-mail message and type in the first name of a person from the global address book and hit ctrl- k to check the name...we get a response that Outlook doesn't recognize the name and there are "no suggestions". The only way Check Name will successfully resolve the name is if we type it last name first (ie, Gates, Bill). This was not the case in Office XP or Outlook 2000. You could search by first name (or partial first name)...

Outlook 2003
Hello, we have one client pc with Outlook 2003 where the following problem occurs: if a mail is replied from a user created sub folder of the inbox, the reply will not appear in sent mails, but will end up in the same sub folder, sender and recipient appear as identical. The mail goes out properly though, it's just that Outlook sets internally sender = recipient and bounces the reply back to the subfolder in which the original mail is stored. This happens on a Win 2000 machine with SP4 and all updates, the other clients use Outlook 2000 or XP and there is no such problem. There are no ru...
