A profile is a critical part of your Outlook experience. The profile consists of the accounts, data files, and settings that specify where your email messages are saved. To create a new profile, do the following:
In Outlook, select File > Account Settings > Manage Profiles
Choose Show Profiles > Add.
In the Profile Name box, type a name for the profile, and then choose OK.
You can add more (non-Exchange) mail accounts to your profile, like Gmail or Live.com. Or you can change options for your account’s data files. See Edit an Outlook profile to learn how.
If you need to switch to an old Outlook profile on the same PC in order to copy data from it, you can follow the steps in the Switch to another Outlook email profile article.
