If you want privacy for each user you need to set up seperate identities.In Outlook Express
To add a new identity

On the File menu, point to Identities, and then click Add New Identity.
Type the name of the new user.
If you want to include a password for this identity, select the Require a password option, and then enter a password.
Outlook Express asks you if you want to log on as the new user. If you answer yes, you will be prompted for information about your Internet connection. If you answer no, the current user
remains logged on.

You then need to set up the mail account for each idntity while logged into that identity.

To add an e-mail or newsgroup account

You will need the following information from your Internet service provider (ISP) or local area network (LAN) administrator:

For e-mail accounts, you'll need to know the type of e-mail server you use (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP), your account name and password, the name of the incoming e-mail server and, for POP3 and IMAP, the name of an outgoing e-mail server.
For a newsgroup account, you'll need to know the name of the news server you want to connect to and, if required, your account name and password.
On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
In the Internet Accounts dialog box, click Add.
Select either Mail or News to open the Internet Connection Wizard, and then follow the instructions to establish a connection with an e-mail or news server.

Each user can create multiple e-mail or newsgroup accounts by repeating the procedure above for each

There is absolutely no need to setup separate identities in Outlook Express, if you have separate User Accounts in XP.

If you do, simply login as your wife, open Outlook Express, go to Tools > Accounts > Add , follow the prompts.

Do the same for your sister, having first logged in as her.

This is by far the easiest way in XP. If you do not yet have separate User Accounts, go to Control Panel > User Accounts > Add, and set one up for your sister and your wife - there are many other benefits to multiple user accounts.

You are, of course, perfectly correct about users in XP. That makes much more sense.
