Anyone good with outlook and email accounts? I work in a small office (5 computers with a unix server, networked peer to peer win 2000). the company has its own mail domain, with each person having their own account ([email protected]). they don't currently use them, as they have been using an AOL account for company email. this is very unprofessional and wasteful, so i'm trying to set everyone up with their accounts on outlook.

here is the problem i am running into. i set up my account, and it works great. however, i went in and added another person's account on here, and now when outlook is opened, my account AND their account are kind of combined... the inbox contains emails addressed to both accounts, etc. i really want to get it so that when a person opens outlook, all they get is their account and inbox. what am i missing? i would greatly appreciate any help.

You use profiles in corporate mode, not the internet mail only. To check your configuration, goto tools, options, and the second or third tab has a button that says Reconfigure mail support. You can check to see if you are in corporate mode. If you are, Right click on the Outlook Icon on the desktop. Click on properties. From there you can add profiles. For each person add Internet email or Exchange.(depending on your mail setup) add personal address book (for distribution lists) and add personal folders. This is where things need to be different! Name the pst file the same as the person using it. So [email protected] would have name.pst. [email protected] would have name2.pst etc... After you set each person up, open up outlook go to tools, options, then click the second tab over you can select prompt for profiles, and each profile should have a name for it. You name them when you create them. Sorry not to have exact tab/screen names, but the computer I am at does not have Outlook installed.

:D

outlook password problem now

I have another problem. I have OE 5 with win 2000, and when i open express, it prompts me for the password over and over again. i went to use the instructions to fix this from the microsoft website which tells you to delete a key from the registry and then add the password using the mail icon in control panel (see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;275465) , but win 2000 doesn't have the mail/fax icon in control panel, so i can't complete the instructions. this is very frustrating, and any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Did you use the regular tools --> accounts --> then find your mail account click on the servers tab and put your username and password in there.

It sounds like once you set the correct permissions on the registry that it should be able to save it.

Past that I have no clue...
