When you create a new user account, each user has their own desktop, personal Start Menu, Favorites, My Documents and other things, including Outlook/Outlook Express email settings and (hopefully) MSN settings. I don't know about that last one, though, as I don't use it or seen anybody with it.

Just make sure that any check boxes are ticked to indicate that you would like this to happen (I think it is set by default).

just create the new account, then log onto it and set up Outlook Express with details of new users email account.

Full details of how to setup and configure User Accounts are given under Security and Adminstration in XP Help and Support - that's why Microsoft provides such comprehensive help support in every one of its programs and applications.
