Several user profiles to access one mailbox

I have a Win95 computer with 5 user profiles ( this is a family computer, no security issues)I would like to find out how to use Outlook Express for email and set it up so that all users access the same mailbox. I currently am using the Windows Messaging Update and all users have the same Personal Folders. But with this program there are no clickable links to web pages in the emails which is what I am trying to accomplish.
Thanks in advance

First of all make sure you're using Outlook Express 5.  If not, download it.

OE5 has something called 'identities' where you can create users who will access the mailbox and give them all a password.  It will default to you all using the same mailbox, but give each user the ability to make their own preference settings, send e-mail with their own name in the from field, etc.

Works quite well, I use it here.  Very easy to configure.

If you don't already have it, I'd recommend that you upgrade to IE5 before trying it.  IE5 seems to be an upgrade to the base operating system ... !
