How to create two separate e-mail users in one Outlook Express

outlook express feature

It is possible, you might as well as I have not been paying attention, but that’s little I researched and saw that possibility.
To clarify the situation:
You have a computer that is running Windows XP and do not want to open two user names for input ( two separate users in the Welcome Screen) . Why not? It’s your thing. Use Outlook Express as the default (default) program for the e-mail address, but you and your “sister” or “colleague” also have their e-mail address and lift it using the same computer. However, you receive the “business sensitive” messages and do not want your second user see which messages are received or sent and to whom.

You can solve this by creating a new Identity (Identity) on the same Outlook Express.

In further steps, for beginners which have to work in Outlook Express, I will explain how to do it:


From the menu, choose  (File) => Identities (identity) => Add New Identity … (Add new identity)



You open a new dialog window New Identity (New Identity) where you need to enter the name of another user who will use the program  Outlook Express. In this case, I assigned a new identity as “Team Mate”. Of course she wants that you can not read her messages and therefore wants the password to access her e-mail messages. Checking box outside option Require a password (Password Required).


Once you have checked the box in front of the required password you open a new dialog window with a request to enter a password and enter it again to confirm. You’ll be a good colleague to get away and turn a blind eye to one eye because it is necessary to know the password if you want to erase her identity from Outlook Express (if you really want then you are “bad colleague”), and I allow him to enter the password. Confirm by clicking on the OK button.
Now you can show up a new dialog window where you confirm that the new identity is added so will ask if you want to get straight to the newly Identity (another user of the program). If you want and it should be as you will need to open an e-mail account. So click Yes (Yes)


Now you can open a new dialog window wizard for creating user e-mail “colleague” So far, this procedure does not describe unless you know how to open a new e-mail account (e-mail account), it will ask about name of your team mate,


After completing the account creation and setup POP3 and SMTP parameters, you will get a new dialog window in which OE noticed that the computer has an active one of these applications (Microsoft Exchange or Outlook or Windows Messaging) and asks you, whether you want to import your messages and address. If you are sure you have something like that in some of these programs, click on Next and follow the dialog window and issues. If you have not run any of these programs and do not want anything Imoportirati (introduce), click the Cancel button,


Or you can go to Do not import at this time, and to enter e-mail address of your team mate team.mate@yourdomain.com, click Next, enter your POP3 and SMTP servers ( or maybe your network infrastructure use IMAP mail servers ) and click Next, type your team mate user name and password of his e-mail account, click Next, and Finish.
And that is all, you will see your teammate user account created along with his E-mail identity.

In the run program for receiving and sending  e-mail messages to the input or the transition from one to the other user’s identity, the same can be performed by using commands with the File menu (File) => Switch Identity (change identity).


Now you can open the window Switch Identity (change identity) and the user chooses his identity, enter password (password) and click on the OK button (OK) to access their part of Outlook Express, which set all the parameters as desired.

To change the parameters Password (password) , name ( name of identity) and identity, you must go to main menu – File => Identity => Manage Identities (Identity management), and the newly opened window you can Remove (remove) or change Properties parameters.

Main Identity (Main Identity) can not be removed. He “comes” Something like an administrator account in Windows XP.
The secondary identities also can not remove it if you do not know the password.
Maybe I didn’t described all the options because there are quite a few, but I described the most important steps and do something yourself.
