How to disable an email service, not delete it

I am a contract programmer and I've always used Outlook Express for my email.  One of the nice features of OE is that I can enter all of my various email addresses (as setup at all of my clients) and enable/disable them at-will depending on where I'm at and the latest activity at a particular client.

In Outlook Express a service can be disabled without deleting it by:

  * Tools / Accounts
  * Select the service "Properties"
  * Select the "General" tab
  * Uncheck the box "Include this account when receiving mail or sychronizing".

I am now working at a client that requires me to use "Outlook" (not "Outlook Express").  Apparently, I can't just type in my other email services and disable them until I want to manually check them.  

NOTE:  I do NOT want to enable all of my accounts all of the time due to security (I don't want to download email from one client while at another client's office unless I manually perform the download) and duplicate email messages on various computers I own.

I can't believe Outlook Express can perform this simple tasks and Outlook can not.

REQUEST:  Please tell me that I'm wrong and that I can enter all of my email accounts into "Outlook Express" (version 2000 SR-1) and disable them on a need-to-check later basis without deleting and retyping the whole damn wizard setup each time.

You should be able to do this.

Go to Tools-Options-Mail Services Tab
Click on the Reconfigure Mail Support.

When the E-mail Services Options menu open, select the Internet Only, then click Next.

You will need to configure the mail server and the account info (almost similar to what you do in OE)

that's it, it is easy.

After finishing, you can switch between the current configuration and the new added configurations by doing the following:

Click Tools - Options - Mail Services
You can change the profile to use from there (Either MS Exchange Settings or the Microsoft Outlook Internet Settings)
Or, simply, you can select the system to prompt for the profile to be used.
