XP Home & Individual E-Mail ?

Hi Everybody,
I have just changed to XP Home after using 98SE, I did this, not as an upgrade version, but as the full format and install.
I would like to know how using OE6, & Blueyonder dial-up, that everybody can see all the mail. At the moment whoever logs-on gets the mail, if you want to see all the mail you have to Switch User. WHAT HAVE I DONE WRONG?
Is it something simple like altering settings in OE6, or have I got to change my settings with my IP?

Regards, Bob.

P.S. I will be away from the Computer for a while, thanks in anticipation!

You have set up the same e amil account on each users account.

To stop what is occuring you will need to delete this account from all but your settings.

OE6>Tools>Accounts

With Blueyonder you can set up up to five seperate accounts for each real e amil address. Go to theri help pages for an expanation.

I have three clone accounts linked to my real account. This gives each person an individual e mail address and this can be set up in each of their own user profiles

at a rough guess you will need to select allusers share this connection and additionally set up the same e mail protocol for each profile or as administrator set up mail prefs but in my opinion the first option is more prefereble.

Thanks guys,
I thought it was something simple that I had probably missed on changing over OS.

Where would we be without the SAGE like answers of people like yourselves?

Regards, Bob.
