What is a Profile?

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The names in Outlook are not particularly consistent. The following are (almost) the same:

E-mail Account
Personal Storage File
PST File


Despite which name is used, it is always the "Superfolder" for inbox, outbox, tasks, contacts and several other folders. The data stored in a profile can be in your computer or another computer in a PST file or in an Exchange Server.
