Outlook 2003: How to stop receiving multiple emails from email aliases using same user name/password.

I have recently upgraded from Outlook 2000 to 2003 and have set up all my email accounts.  I have a few different email aliases that use the same account ( user name and password ).

Now when I receive my emails I get duplicate emails from the server - one for each.  This did not happen on Outlook 2000.  If I remove the email accounts using the same user names and passwords, then I only receive each email once.  

Outlook 2003 won't let me enter in a blank incoming mail server POP3 name and if I put something invalid in it, I don't like to see the error when it tries to access it.  

I have spoken to my ISP and they couldn't help me.

I don't want to have to get additional accounts ( user names and passwords) for each email aliases.

What can I do to resolve the problem?
How do I stop receiving multiple emails from email aliases using same user name/password in Outlook 2003?

I worked it out myself - here are the steps:

How to stop receiving multiple emails from email aliases using same user name/password in Outlook 2003:

1). Go to Menu: Tools => Opions

2). Go to Tab: Mail Setup

3). click Send/Receive [ Send/Receive...] button

4). Click [ Edit... ] button

5). Click on each accounts on left and untick "[*] Receive mail items" for those accounts you don't want to download emails additional duplicate emails for - e.g. the accounts that use the same user name / password.

* SHOULD I DELETE THIS QUESTION NOW????
