Hi guys, I have win Xp and my wife and I log on seperatly ( you know the two identities thing) and we can both open Outlook express for E mail. I have made it so we both an account, so that when I send an E mail it sayes its from me and when she sends one it says it's from her. But the incoming e mail always goes to whoever logs on to Outlook express first. This is I suppose because essentialy it's only one E mail address. How can I change this so we have our own E mail within Outlook Express?
My e mail is outlook express and my isp is wanadoo. I've tried doing what you suggested, diodorus and e mail's can be sent out seperatly but when an e mail is received it is received by whoever logs on first no matter what the first name on the address is. I'm not sure it is possible to do what i'm after.
In OE you have "accounts" set-up for each e-mail address you wish to retrieve from the server. It sounds as if you have two accounts set-up under your log-on and two under your wife's. Try deleting your wife's account from OE in your log-on and remove your account from OE in your wife's log-on.
I think you need to swap compters with this chap who has the opposite problem - click here
Isn't there an option when you set up users to have the identities either created the same or to have them totally independent? Perhaps that is the route to try. Create another user and select the "keep identities the same" option.
