I have a user who wants to have identical access to his e-mail on a Windows 2000 computer whether he is logged in as the administrator or another specific login.

Thanks to help from BozzoCage ( http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=win2k&qid=20181054 ), we've got both logins pulling from the same inbox, using Outlook Express. The next challenge is, can we get both logins to share one address book?

Thanks.

Modify the following registry value :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\WAB\WAB4\Wab File Name

Change the Default value "\Document and Settings\User\...." to the network share that's accessable from both computers.

Thanks for the response, Portang, but it sounds like you might have misunderstood the question. (Or maybe I'm misunderstanding your response...)

I'm trying to get two logons on the same computer to share an address book. It sounds to me like your response will get one user access to the same address book from multiple computers.

Am I reading this wrong?

Thanks -- b.r.t.

That's the same solution, isn't it ?

First, locate User1's the Address Book which you want to share, it should be \Document and Settings\User1\......

Next, logon as the 2nd user, then change the registry key value to User1's address book, that's it.
