not sure if this is what you want
Enable pop3 in gmail user accounts.
Setup your email client to check these gmail pop accounts.
The instructions for the most common home email clients are on the gmail site ( where you setup the pop settings for your gmail account).
If your email client is not listed there use the generic settitngs, they worked for me in Pegasus mail.
Pegasus mail now checks my ISP email account and my Gmail account.

Got called into work this arvo just after seeing this thread.

anyhow, Whats your question exactly?, are you running gmail through outlook express? ( I have never used gmail so im not sure if you can even do that or not)

Anyhow, If you are trying to look at different accounts within outlook express there is a little drop down arrow beside the send/recieve icon that will display a list of accounts set up on that machine, You can use that to check accounts invidually.

if your trying to add accounts then thats under tools>accounts>add

If your trying to look at the properties of each account then they are displayed under tools>accounts.

If your talking about checking different gmail accounts via the gmail interface, No idea, though Im sure you can log out of one account and then into another.....

One more gmail question.

When the OE Logon screen for gmail comes up it shows as pop.gmail.com
It also shows the email address. But the password needs to be typed in every time. The tick box for 'remember me' is greyed out, how do I get this back, Please. PJ

Go into the gmail account / servers tab. Under account name under servers put the username / pw in here, and tick remember password under this and tick log on using secure password auth.

And then click on my server requires authentication, click on settings beside this change it to log on using re-enter your username and pw here, and tick remember password here as well.

That should stop it from asking u all the time.

Still completely stumped with this. I am obviously missing something. I do recall having the same problems last time around & it was something very simple that I was missing. Will have another go tomorrow. Thanks for your help. PJ
