Create Outlook Profile "The profile name you entered already exists"

When create a Outlook profile and the profile name has been used and deleted before, you are getting "The profile name you entered already exists"

Test Environment:
Windows 7 and Outlook 2010


1. First thing to try is to close Outlook completely and go to Control Panel and create a new profile from Mail(32Bit). If still same problem, please go to step 2

2. Open your Windows registry (Start -> Search... > regedit)

3. Navigate to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows
Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Outlook

4. Under Outlook, there are subdirectories and each one was the profile you created before. Delete them by right click and delete
