Outlook express - multiple addresses

  badgermansix 22:44 18 Feb 2009

I'm using OE with muliple usernames,at the moment I open each address to read and send mail.
Is there a way that I can open one OE window and read all the mail, to my different usernames (I think that I have got that right??).

Yes - just setup all your mail accounts within a single user session. Then if you wish you can filter them into different folders.

I read several email accounts (with ThunderBird now, but with Outlook and Outlook Express before that). I don't bother to filter them though - they all go into the same Inbox except for my GMail one.

Thunderbird is easier to setup without filtering, as it automatically sorts incoming mail into separate Account Inboxes, unless you tick a box not to.

If you mean can you read them all under one username session, and allocates them to instances of OE in different usernames - then I'm pretty sure that's not possible.

Windows Live Mail, the latest replacement for Windows Mail/OE, also offers a Quick View where all unread emails are shown or you can view them under their individual accounts.
