Is there some way I can set Outlook Express so my wife can use my email account, yet have the "from" part of the message use her name instead of mine? I use IE4.01 with Outlook Express.

Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

Double-click Passwords, and then click the User Profiles tab.

When a user logs on, his or her e-mail account is available. For one user to log off and another to log on, follow these steps:

Click Start, and then click Log Off <username>, where <username> is the name of the user currently logged on to the computer.
