View Full Version : Outlook Express 6 : Switching Identities

22-11-2002, 10:58 PM
Having bought a new PC with WinXP, I'm trying to establish two identities within OE6. Whilst I can create the second identity, OE6 will not switch to it. I've tried the suggestion made by Stephen Heighway on 23/12/01 (to end the 'msimn.exe' process etc) but this hasn't worked. Do I have a corrupt OE6? Any ideas?

Hi tkelly, i use switch identities in o.e (except i am not on that puter at the moment as its at the shop) but from memory if your identity is set up go - File - Switch Identities - Or if you have sp1 installed it changed to something like - File - manage identities - then you could log on as the other one. I posted a thread awhile back with the instructions so i will try finding it and post it if i am wrong. Hope that helps.

Dont knmow what you have tried, but I used to (dont use outlook anymore) file-> logout identity and then file-> login as..
