Outlook 2007 and 2010 side-by-side ?

Is it possible to run more than 1 outlook instance in the same time ? Exchange Administrators should now what I mean here, normally this isn’t possible due to the MAPI issue. BUT if you are using Windows 7 (or any other application virtualization technology like MED-V from Microsoft) you can easily run that in the new WindowsXP Mode. I had installed within the WindowsXP virtual machine Outlook 2007 and are running the CTP version of Outlook 2010 on my main Windows 7 (RC1) system. When you had enabled – which is the current default setting – the “Auto Publish” mode in the virtual machine setting all application which you install additionally to the OS will be published trough your start menu.

Auto Publish – Setting
