I have just reinstalled Office 2000 and am having difficulty having 2 separate email accounts appear for email. I have set up both accounts, via tools/accounts, but for some reason when I open outlook email it only shows one account and used to have an option of which acount I wanted to use. Now all emails come to the same inbox? How can I rearrange this? I would like to have the option of which account to open and keep them separated.

Completed that with 2 accounts BUT every time I open outlook email it goes to the default email inbox only and never prompts as to which email address I want to open. Somehow I had this option before.

Even went and changed my default account to number 2 account, but it still opens in number 1 account with no option as to which account I want to open. I presume if I launch from some other location it will use my default account location but not for reading mail etc.

I have deleted the accounts and reinstalled numerious times via both the mail icon in control panel, and via properties of Outlook. Every time I re open the program it goes directly to the number 1 account inbox, and never gives the option of getting into the number 2 account. I can check the box to allow both email accounts to download into the same inbox, but I am attempting to keep to separate mails systems.
