without knowing the os tis a bit difficult, but if xp you just go into user profiles and build a new profile for your daughter, the connection prob is a bit different ie what set up? dial up/broadband?

click on start, control panel, user accounts, create new account type in chosen name click next
and follow rest of instructions [email protected]

what i used to do on dial up was on each user you use there e-mail account name i.e [email protected] so take john.smith as the user name and insert your password word that should work.

on each user use the connection wizard and put in the first part of their email address as the user and insert your password when you come to outlook choose tools new account insert their user name then click on pop3 if your using that and input pop.your then below insert smtp.your then click ok

open dialup box and click on "anyone who uses this computer" that should allow access to net for all accounts
