Question Dual users on Outlook...

I have a freeserve account with two e-mail addresses eg MyName@Name.freeserve.co.uk & MyName2@Name.freeserve.co.uk. I have set up my pc with two user accounts and would like each persons mail to only be visible on their corresponding login name. Currently all e-mail goes through to whoever opens the Outlook account first.
Any help on how to set this up correctly much appreciated.

I would rather just stick with Outlook Express if at all possible!

Not sure how it works in Outlook Express because its a buggy peace of cloogey crap that even MS doesn't want people using. With the full Outlook app, you can have the email accounts setup based on who is logged into the machine.

Also, if you have the two email addresses, and neither person is supposed to be seeing both, only setup the address that they are supposed to see. When someone logs in, the emails will get downloaded to whoever accesses the server first (ie - the first logged on user). If they can't see the other account, they can't download from that account.

If you are using Outlook Express cant use just use the Identies settings? Just create 2 identies and have each identity correspond with the email account that you want.

When you load it up it will have the last account that used it will auto open just go to File>Switch Identities to switch to the user you want.

File>Identies will allow you to set up different identities. Check the settings you might be able to set it up so that you have to chose the identity that you want to load with. Not to sure since i use Outllok "12" and Thunderbird. But if memory serves me right you can do that with OE.
