Access to Outlook Express

Please help ....

Windows XP, two password-controlled users on the computer - myself and my son.

How do I allow access to my e-mails (using Outlook) for my son who is on a seperate password? He has access to the program itself but not to any e-mail functions. Pending setting up an account for him, I want him to share my account.

I think the only way of doing this is to set up your account details in your sons Account. But, if this is done, when your son is logged in he will pick up your email where as your account may not.

Thank you for the quick response.I'll wait for a little longer for more responses but this looks like a no-goer.

I concer with recap. You'll end up with two mail boxes and with your mail spread over both.

Any reason it will take so long to set him up an account? Most ISP accounts can be set up instantly.

Remember though, if it is an ISP email account, most ISP's will disable the account if you do not log in to the site on a regular basis.

Thank you both.

The only reason I was stalling for time to set up another account is because at the moment I've no idea how to do it! However, I'm working on this particular issue and am doing a lot of self-directed learning -joy. :-)

Who are you setting the account up with? Maybe we can help?
