Hello, I need to have two user accounts on one computer. Have one user log into the network, but allow the user  access to both accounts. I'm using outlook 97 running on a microsoft exchange server. so far I've created two profiles, each with its own .pst file, the server sees both accounts, but on sending e-mail...only the user who logged in can see he's e-mail, the other user cannot...in order for the second user to see his e-mail he would have to reboot the PC and log in as a new user, and thats what I want to avoid. can someone please help.

TIA, Jovix.

In Outlook 97,

1. Goto Tools Options
2. Select the General Tab
3. In start-up settings, Select Prompt for profile being used.

This may or may not work for what you want to do.

Give both accounts the permission to open each other mailbox in the Admin Programm of Exchange.
Do the changes like mcix suggested
Goto Service\Option\Exchange Server\Advanced Options
Select for each account the other account to be displayed additional.

Both can now read their EMails when the other account is logged in, but to answer with their original mail address they have to stop outlook, and to start with their own profile

I have a similar issue but am trying to avoid rebooting. We have a generic login to Netware and NT first, then two or more profiles on a PC. I want to be prompted for which profile then have to enter username and password to validat on NT for access to Exchange. All PC's are Win95 with Office 97 but some have the option under Control Panel, Mail & Fax, Outlook Properties, Exchnage Server, Advanced to Use Network Security During Logon - and others have a drop down box to choose from. I can't figure out what causes the two different options. If the Use Network Security box is there and checked, unchecking it allows me to do what I want. If the nachine has the drop down box I can't do it and each user has to reboot and login to access their account. Any Ideas?
