    Actually 2 of them...

    1. Can you have multiple email accounts on one pc and use
    outlook? My wife has an email account as do I and both my daughters and we want to be able to have all of us use outlook on the same pc.

    2. Can it be installed on separate pc with the same disk. In other words, do I need to buy 3 copies of this program for my personal pc, my work pc and my laptop?

    Thanks.

    1. I would imagine you can do that by having different login accounts. In Outlook express you can set up multiple accounts. Your program might load to one default account but then you go into the tools and could click on the other accounts.

    You could probably also do it with different login accounts from Windows. Windows allows you to have multiple login accounts.

    Now I am not sure about using Outlook as I either use outlook express or online email accounts.

    Online email accounts might be your best option anyway. That way you can check them from other computers as long as you can get online. I guess the problem with online email accounts might be if you monitor your kids email accounts.

    2. Yes you can install it on a separate PC as long as you have the CD and the Key (serial number). Now technically that is only supposed to be on one PC per user license. So it can be done, but not lawful.

    However I have done this many times over the years without any problems and I don't recall anyone getting in trouble for it.

    We get multiple license for Windows, Semantic anti-virus, word and other programs at work for all of our PCs. However I normally use them at home as well.

    1. Yes....you have to setup separate profiles in outlook.

    2. It depends on the type of license you bought. If you bought an OEM license, basically off the shelf at the store, then you won't be able to. When you open the program it will ask you to activate and tell you it's already been activated.

    Is the #2 answer just for Outlook?

    Because as I noted I have used many different microsoft programs on different computers and have not had problems...even ones like Windows that I know we have exceeded the multiple license?

    They changed office 2007. If you don't activate it with a valid key you can only use it for so many days or a set number of times.

    See my answer above. 2007 is different from the other versions.

    On a side note.....Outlook 2007 is the only reason I installed Office 2k7. I hate the new menu system.

    Thanks guys.

    What about the calendars?

    We now have so much going on with the kids and my wife we need separate ones. Will this be able to be done or will it merge all the calendars together?

    When you create separate Outlook profiles everything is separate, mailbox, calendars, etc. You can also tell it to prompt which profile to load each time you start Outlook.

    Control Panel -> Mail.

    I believe you can create separate calendars for each profile, as well.

    And if you wanted to see another person's calendar, you should be able to add it to your calendar view.
