I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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

How to activate Windows Mail in Win7:
 
– take over ownership of c:\program files\windows mail\msoe.dll
 – replace it with msoe.dll from Vista
 – add WindowsMail.reg to Registy
 ___________________________________________
 
Only these 2 files are needed:
 MSOE.DLL of Vista 64Bit or
 MSOE.DLL of Vista 32Bit and
 WindowsMail.REG


this is a proven method from mydigital life here http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/06/05/download-windows-mail-from-vista-for-use-in-windows-7/

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.
