Display multiple accounts in Outlook for Windows


If you are someone's assistant, and part of your job is to read, and respond to email for someone else, you can have your Outlook account set up so that both your Outlook account, and the Outlook account of the person whose email you monitor are both displayed when you log into your account.

Have the person whose account you need access send an email to [email protected] requesting that you be granted full access and send permissions to their account. Once the permissions have been set, execute the following steps.

  1. Open your Outlook
  2. Select the File tab.
  3. Click Account Settings and select Account Settings...
  4. Select your account.
  5. Click Change.
  6. Click More Settings...
  7. Click the Advanced tab.
  8. Click Add, and enter the name of the second account you want to monitor from within your account.
  9. Click OK, Next and then Finish to close the windows.
  10. Start a new email.
  11. Click the Options tab in the ribbon.
  12. Click Show From. This will make it so that when you start a new email, by default, the From option is displayed.

You can now read emails from both accounts, but when you want to send an email from an account other than your own, you need to enter the appropriate account in the From field.
