    I use Microsoft Office 2004.

    In the Microsoft User Data Folder (which is inside the Documents Folder) there is, amongst other items, a folder called "Office X Identities".

    Anyone know why that folder is there and what it's function is?

    Although I have Office 2004, I upgraded from Office v.X. I was under the impression that Office X Identities was an artifact of my earlier installation. I learn something new every day.

    For your question, Office allows each user to have multiple "identities," each of which is a set of settings such as email settings. Because every file in my Office X Indentities folder is an Entourage file, I believe that only Entourage uses multiple identies. However, I am not certain.
