No, there doesn't seem to be such an option - at least at first glance (I think I hit every option in Windows Live Mail and didn't see anything, but I can't be 100% certain).

Generally though, different people log onto the computer with their own user account. Windows Live Mail (and many other things) maintain settings on a per-user basis, so that if I log onto the computer as "Todd" I'll get my mail in Live Mail, and if you logged onto the computer as "swpui" you'd get your mail in Live Mail.
I am not familiar with windows live mail personally I think its a terrible mail client (one of the worst in fact)

Perhaps youd have better luck with windows mail from vista you can re add it to windows 7 using the following

Per Microsoft:

What happened to e-mail identities?

The ability to create e-mail identities in Outlook Express, which allowed multiple people sharing the same computer to keep their e-mail separate, has been removed in Windows Mail. Instead, Windows Mail enables you to create separate Windows user accounts for each person who wants to use e-mail on a single computer. If you're upgrading to Windows Mail from an Outlook Express account that contains multiple e-mail identities, Windows Mail will automatically launch a wizard to guide you through the process of importing your previous e-mail identities into your current user account. This wizard will launch each time Windows Mail is started until all identities have been imported or deleted.

This is the case in both Windows Mail, and Windows Live Mail.
