I have two separate user accounts (Windows XP) for myself and one email address. Is there anyway I can set up OE to share the same info for both of my accounts? If I receive mail while on one user account that message is not in my inbox on my other user account. Same thing with my Address book - it is not shared.

outlook tends to be very good at distinguishing between users. this is very helpful for public machines with multiple users. not so helpful for single users who for whatever reason need two logons. not sure about how OE does this but i know in regular outlook you can have your emails delivered to a .pst file instead of your mailbox (that's how i have mine set up here at work so as to keep my mail server clean) theoretically you would be able to access one users pst from another users outlook. i'm not sure if this would fix this issue, or even how OE handles this kind of thing...but maybe someone else can use this to apply some muscle

I've used OE forever and have configured it every which way. Let me see if I have this straight...
You have one email address
joesmith @ etc.com
But you want emails to joesmith to go to two user accounts?
What would the other account be? Is there another email account?
You can export your address book if that helps.
