This is not really a WildWest topic, but if anyone knows the answer I would appreciate it. I have Outlook 2000 for my personal email, and Outlook Express for my wildwest email. I want to have seperate address books for each one, but they appear to read from the same file. When I add or delete from one, it affects the other one. I don't want my personal email addresses mixed up with my WildWest email addresses. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks and happy holidays. Ig

Why not just put them in seperate groups in the same address book?

This may not be the right way, but it is a way. In outlook 2000, go to Tools Address Book. Then in the address book option, go to Tools Options. Then add, remove or create address books to your hearts desire. Gringo also had a good idea and it approaches from the OE side of things. Go to Tools, Address book in OE and then right click and choose New>Group. Or just move your contacts out of the shared contacts list. Personally I'd choose the first option but that's more because I don't know the whol master plan behind some of Outlook express's "wizards" and I do know Outlook's approach quite well. Did you know that microsoft has an entire building devoted to Microsoft Outlook Express? It is a totally different code base/program from Outlook. They just chose to give it the same name.

well on my old old computer system I had 2 directories for my eudora: eudora eudora1 the files for each had their own separate directory information. I would just copy your outlook directory and rename the copy w/ a number after it. then make a second bookmark for the second directory. (cheap and dirty fix to you're problem.)

I stumbled across the answer to my question. If you open OE, and then open your address book, then do Tools/Options it brings up a dialog box asking you if you want to share your address book with other applications. If you choose NO, you can have seperate address books for Outlook and Outlook Express.. Woo Hoo! Ig

See I knew there was a "right" answer out there. (And I knew I didn't have it!)
