    Can some help me Please
    I have just started using outlook express and have set up two identities one for me and one for the wife which works fine apart from I have no need to switch identities to check my mail as its all downloaded onto my wifes account when she logs on.
    SO I only really need to switch over if I want to write an email showing my address
    Would really like our mail going into different places
    Thanks

    Cheers mate looks like you need separate user accounts to split up your outlook express folders for email addresses cant see why it has a switch identities when they go to the same in box

    No, AFAIK you don't need separate user accounts in Windows - as you say you can just switch identities in OE. What you do need is a separate email address set up with your ISP for each user. Many ISP's will let you have more than 1 email address, so this shouldn't be a problem to get set up. Then you just setup each user identity in OE to pickup the correct email address.

    thanks for your reply mate.
    I have [email protected] and my wife has [email protected] but all my mail goes into her inbox as soon as she opens outlook, so there is no need for me to switch identities.
