I am temporarily shairng a machine with my wife. I have it set up with sign-on for each of us as administrators.
Currently I have her email setup with Outlook 2002 after she signs on with HER P/W.
Can I set up Another Outlook email account for my use after I sign on to this machine with MY adminstrator account? And how?.
My ISP has provided 5 email accounts with separate mailboxes under my master account. Currently, there is myself, wife, daughter, son. Son & daughter have their own computers and are not involved in this temporary situation.

Also I installed MS Office 2002 this computer was delivered. It did not come included from Dell.
I would like MS Word to be the default text editor for the email, however, there is no option to select it in the control panel add/remove section as of yet.

Use profiles


either use a new windows profile (different user names)

either create a new outlook profile   (in control panel use the mail icon create new profile, don't forget to check always ask for profile)

tada

Did you miss that I already have 2 USERS setup on this machine?
My wife and myself with our own individual protected passwords.

Are you saying that currently she has a profile already established under her email name once she signs on the WINxp welcome screen?

That I must do the same after I sign on to my adminstrators welcome screen? without conflict?
While there is only version of Outlook installed on this machine, can it be modified to suit our individual tastes, fonts, appearance?
My OWN personal computer is under repair and that is where I currently have my own Outlook email account setup.
Will there be a conflict once my computer is repaired or can I then have access to my email from either computer?

Please expand your responses this time, thanks

the application is one in "program files"
but the user data and configuration are different
each user has his own under c:\document and settings\ username

so you can have as many user you want without any user overlapping

sorry not being expansive but thats windows basics :)

You basically share the computer with both have administrator rights. Each user can sign on and open the mail application and create an account to retrieve mail from your ISP. When crating the mail account, you can also give your mail profile a name so you know what to launch.
1. When you log on to your Admin account. Go to start, Control Panan, and Mail
2. Select, show Profile and Select Prompt for a Profile to be use *** If you see multiple profile in the system. If you do not, you can select Always use this profile.
3. Click Add and type in your e-mail profile name and Add e-mail account, Next
4. You ISP probably give you POP3 mail. You need to get those information from your ISP to set up this mail. For example, incoming mail server , outgoing mail server, user ID and Password. Talk to your ISP to find out what mail protocol they use.
5. Once you have enter all the information, you should hit Next and finish out the setting.
6. Launch the Outlook application and it will start pulling mail down from your ISP for you. Hint: if you select Promt for a profile to be use, Outlook will ask you which profile you want to open.

I hope this help. So you and your wilfe can create Outlook profile once log on to your Admin account.
