Multiple e-mail addresses setup


I have an email address with a service provider,  I can send email to and it arrives OK but how do I set up Outlook express 5 to only see these emails under a different identity to my own so that only another can access them?

It's probably me who is ignorant!!

I want myself and my girlfriend to be able to receive email via an email address each, for me and for her.  

What I want to do is set up 2 identities in Outlook Express 5, one to handle the email for my email address and one for her.

Can it be doen and how???

Take a look at this article from Microsoft :
Even though it states OE4 should work the same with OE5.

Thanks celtics.

It didn't actually solve the problem but gave me an idea for a way round it.  I've installed the ISP software under a new profile for my girlfriend and now she has a completely separate email address (not both, hers is different).

She can now send and receive without it going through my account.
