ExtraOutlook gives you well, an extra Outlook
Almost everyone has, at one time or another, wished that you could have multiple copies of Outlook running at the same time. After all, opening another mailbox within Outlook doesn't give you windows toast and calendar pops, etc.
The standard answer has always been "run Outlook for your primary mailbox and use OWA for all the other mailboxes", which works; but well, OWA just isn't Outlook.
That's still the official answer.
However, early this year a hacker known as "H.O.G." (for HammerOfGod) released a tool known as ExtraOutlook! This tool actually modifies the Outlook executable and causes Outlook to NOT check to see if another Outlook is running.
If you are "plug-in free", this is a great tool and it works really well.
However, it confuses quite a number of plugins (such as Xonbi) that attempt to open a "default MAPI profile" and find two (or more) running instead of just one.
I'm sure that modifying the Outlook executable puts you straight in the "not supported" arena as well. But if you need the tool - you probably don't care. :-)
Give it a go. No promises, but it has worked for me.
Until next time...
