I would like to set my wife as a separate user (done) but I want her to
access the existing email set up so she can see my email and also hers. But
I would like when she is on her user and creates an email it automatically
uses her email address instead of having to change. Mine is set as default
and would like hers to be default under her user id.

Keeping in mind that I don't want a second email. I want for her to have the
ability to read all email that has come in.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Al Toney

Your ISP supplies the answer for adding another address. If this has been
done, under IE/Tools/Accounts/Mail/Properties change the info under General:
Name.

Help with OE is available from
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.windows.inetexplorer.ie6_outlookexpress.
As far s I can see, you cannot do this with OE. If you share the
mailboxes between the users, the settings will also be shared.

Hi Buddy,
I have done this,but keep in mind I'm less then a novice,and I'm not sure
if I remember correctly,and don't have it anymore.
First I had to add my second users email to my ISP webmail account,
which means you will get her mail also,but that can be changed,
then I added my email to my second user account.
Hence the mail from myself will come to the second account too.
Like I said I don't remember the details,but it's a start for you.
