Microsoft Outlook/Two Databases in Outlook


I have recently switched from old Daytimer software to Outlook. In Daytimer, I had a work database and a home database. It was easy to switch between them and never leave Daytimer. Is there a way to do similar in Outlook 2010? Thanks.

Paul, I am not really clear on what you want to do.  Do you want to separate incoming emails or contacts?

Do you have more than one email address and you want to have them come into separate folders?

Outlook offers the ability to setup as many emails accounts as you want.
You can create Sub folders to the Inbox and use RULES to determine where you want incoming emails to go.

You can create subfolders to the contacts and keep your contacts separated.

I do not see what version of Outlook you are using.  I will assume that it is 2007/2010 which are similar.
