Me and my wife use the same Windows XP computer with different user accounts, both with administrator rights.
I want to know how to forward to her an email I received in outlook, without sending it through internet, I mean, isn't there a local email address which can transfer the email from my local inbox to her local inbox without leaving the computer?

Thanks

If you are using Outlook, you can share the same PST, but then, she would see all of the email, and you wouldn't need to forward to her. Also, two users can't have the same PST file open at once.

Other than that, I don't think there is any way to send an email from one internet mail account to another of the same machine without using the internet mail server. Well, other than setting up a mail server on the computer, but that is likely overkill!

Hope that helps a bit?
