.....and how do i do that??? i know a fair bit about computers but ive never done it before, i could probably work it out, but id like a step by step to make sure i dont completely screw it up, as it isnt my laptop.

i managed to create the new profile fine, however i cant manage to import the settings from microsoft oulook 2003, i tried following the link that broni gave me for creating the new account and that worked but the link on it to helping me import the files for outlook wouldnt work, i assume thats cos its a different version, sorry for being a pain when i thought it was finished:(

sorry...someone else will have to help with your issues with microsoft oulook 2003...I have not used outlook in the last 6 years and anything I knew back then is long gone from my mind... :)

I'm not Outlook user, either, so you may actually start a new topic on it. Provide a link to this thread.
