My system is WIN/XP-SP3. My wife as her own WINXP login as I do I. For months I have had a configuration that allows me to have the OE6 configuration in my account “see” all our email accounts (four) including the one my wife employs.

So in my user login I can see all four accounts and in her login I can see her account, as she only employs her own. In my login, I see four email accounts: email-1, email-2, email-3 and email-4. In her account I can see email-4

Now for the saga as OE6 went belly up for some inexplicable reason. And while I have some measure of skill and tinkered for a while, I could not deduce a suitable fix.

In desperation, I loaded and activated the Windows Live Mail software and then activated all four email accounts in my user login space. (Yes, along the way, I recovered all emails from the OE DBX files via the DBXpress software product.)

Next I logged into my wife’s account but could not access any files with the recovered emails. As a matter of fact WLM would not allow me to activate an already activated email account in her login space indicating that it could not change the registry. Yes, I played with the Store Folder option in WLM. Along the way I saved and copied emails and also moved all the identities into a common space on a disk and into an area other than C:\Documents and Settings\user name\. The new store is I:\WLM Store, with sub-folders for all four email accounts.

At this moment, I can see my three email accounts in my login space, but I must log off my user id and login to my wife’s user id to see and access her email account.

Is there a solution path for me or is the nature of WLM that nothing will work?[/size][/size]
