    Another possibility is to use a shortcut that starts the program with runas.
    Here is a tutorial (it works with Win 10):
    Run as Different User Shortcut - Create for Specified Program and User - Windows 7 Help Forums

    I use this on my home PC with MS Office Outlook 2010.
    Then it doesn't matter what Windows account I'm logged in with when i run Outlook.
    I haven't used it with more than 1 user using Outlook at the same time, i don't use my PC that way.

    If desktop redirects were in place on the server for each particular user profile, that would follow the user no matter which workstation they used to logon to the domain ...

    Yes, you understood rightly. Actually we are on a domain. One day one person sits on a particular pc and other day someone else and they use their own id to enter the domain. Everyone has our mail password. Though they can open the email in browser but if they have to use outlook 2013 then we have to set up it for each employee on each desk ( because no one knows who will sit on which desk the next day )which is very cumbersome.
    What you want to use is called roaming profile in a domain. Any domain user with roaming profile can signon to a workstation or PC. The roaming profile will downloaded from the server. When the user is done, the changes are replicate back to the server. What are your server version? There are some restriction on the servers and client operating system:


    • Server 2003/Windows XP v1
    • Server 2008/Server 2008 R2/Windows Vista/Windows 7 v2
    • Server 2012/Windows 8 v3
    • Server 2012 R2/Windows 8.1 v4
    • Server 2016/Windows 10 v5


    where the v is roaming profile version. For Windows 10 there are roaming profile problems. See

    https://4sysops.com/archives/when-ro...in-windows-10/

    for more detail.
    I have not work with Server 2016 and Windows 10 since my retirement. You might have to do some research yourself! Hope this info help you.

    As I said, I will try something. I copied my desktop icon to my D drive that tried to run this by starting PC with other user ID, but it did not work. So far not tried your suggestion.

    Our server is 2008 R2. I don't have the rights to manipulate the Group Policy and for managing Roaming profile, one need the Admin Rights as I understood.

    I read the link mentioned above. I do not know whether it will work or not for outlook 2013 and then there are two other problems also. First the article says that we need the actual user password to run the shortcut. If we could share the passwords than there was no need to "run as" than we could easily log on to other ID i.e is more practical. Secondly not sure, whether this will work on Domain connected PCs.

    That is one hundred percent correct! Roaming Profile and Group Policy required a System Admin right to set up in a domain. Another facility commonly used is called the folder redirection to the server. You need to contact your System Admin to test or try out roaming profile. The Roaming profile is synchronize as you login/logout, if you have a huge roaming profile, say, 1 or 2 TB, it may be very slow at login and logout.

    That's what I was referring to earlier, though I called it desktop redirect ...
