I'm brand new to XP. I configured two accounts, one for me, one for my wife.
I have outlook express in both configured to look for our common e-mail but
it doesn't seem to work. They are both configured the same, I receive mail,
she doesn't. If she sends an e-mail to herself (our e-mail address) she gets
it and I don't. What gives here?

If you are both using the same Email account the 1st one to access the account
gets the mail.

Courtesy of PA Bear :- Use Message Rules to filter your mail where the
two addresses are aliases for the same mailbox.

E.g., Me@ISP.com and You@ISP.com are aliases for one mailbox. In the
Identity associated with Me@ISP.com, create a Message Rule stating,
"Where To contains You@ISP.com, Do not download it from the server and
Stop processing more rules" (The last phrase is important!) and place
this rule at the very top of the list.

Then create a similar rule for the Identity associated with You@ISP.com
directing any messages addressed to Me@ISP.com to not be downloaded from
the server.
