How to Create an Outlook Mail Profile

Microsoft Outlook mail profile contains all the settings and files to support the email accounts you add in Outlook. A single mail profile can contain multiple email accounts and different account types.

Sometimes multiple Outlook profiles are in use to separate different Outlook setups like Work and Private, or there sometimes is a need to re-create the current Outlook mail profile when it becomes damaged.
