A friend has set up his OE with 2 different accounts, both using same user name and password for the same isp account. His daughter, who has one of the accounts can send and receive email with no problems. HE can only send; all his incoming mail goes to his daughter's account instead of his. The only thing he can receive is messages about updates, etc. His isp is Tiscali and his OS is XP. I'm sure I've read a similar problem and solution in this forum but I can't track it down.
I think I explained it badly at the start. He has a single subscription to tiscali; he and his daughter have different accounts "Dad Bloggs" and "Daughter Bloggs" on this subscription. They each use the same user name and password. He can send emails - from "Dad Bloggs", so too can his daughter - from "Daughter Bloggs", but all the incoming mail addressed to Dad Bloggs is delivered to Daughter Bloggs.
