What program are you using for email? If you are using Outlook, you can do that if you upgrade to version 5 which is free.

Oh
there are 2 kinds of points.
Expert points are earned by answering questions correctly and having your answer accepted.
The points that allow you to ask questions are earned by "being active". That is each day you try to answer questions, you get 5 points.

If you are using Netscape then you must set up user profile for each user. Netscape only allows 1 Pop3 mail account per profile. The bad thing they can still start your profile too, since there is no password protection to open Netscape, they will not be able to access your e-mail account as long as you don't have the "save password" set and they don't know your password.

Use identities and create various users and set each user's mail accounts in his /her identity. this way, each one's mail goes to hi/her mail box only. You can even also set password for your identity.

If you use Outlook express it's possible.
You don't need to upgrade to version 5.
You must do this first.
In the control panel choose the users and define the users you want in your computer. Then restart win98.
Login with the user you want and setup a account for him in Outlook. Then Log off and login as other user at setup another account. Do this many times as the number of users.
I hope this is a good solution
I use this as my place.
