How to Create a New Email Account in Outlook 2010

When you install Outlook 2010 and open it for the first time, you have to setup a mail account settings. After completing the entire process, a default profile will be created by the name of Outlook. But a problem appears if a system is used by many people. You can make a new user account to solve this issue, but making a new account only for a new Outlook profile sounds impractical. However, there is another procedure to tackle this situation; Make another email profile on the same user account with several email accounts on Outlook.
