Windows Mail does not allow you to have two different email accounts under the same user. You will have to log in as a different user to get access to another email account in Vista. It's such a pain... try using Thunderbird instead.

Thanks, blue for posting this for me since I was busy trying to figure out this email.


Anyway, believe me, I've tried everything like Thunderbird and even Windows Live Mail Beta, nothing ever works. I've asked others if it is possible to have two email addresses in this Windows Mail in my laptop like I'm able to use that similiar on my desktop PC that really works just fine. They said that should work. But nothing is working. That is very frustrating since this laptop is for my work that I have to go on the road more often.

Actually I'm tempted to rip Vista off and put in XP but I don't have XP software at all since my desktop PC already had preinstalled XP while this laptop has a preinstalled Vista. So I'm stuck until I see my boss who happens to be a computer whiz to help me figure that out.

*sighs*

What do you mean by "email accounts"? I have 5 different email accounts under one user in Vista's Windows Mail.

From the wiki: "Unlike Outlook Express, Windows Mail does not allow users to switch Identities or manage multiple identities within one running instance of the program. Instead, identities are now tied to the user account and to create additional users or identities, a new user account has to be created."

I don't think that's true of Microsoft Outlook.

Ah, I see. I never saw the real need for the "Indentities". If more than one person is using computer you can just use "UserIDs" instead. Each person has his/her sign on.

So tell me how did you do that five different email accounts?!? I suspected and knew that would work in Windows Mail but something must have stopped me because it kept asking for my username and password. Now what?

When in Windows Mail, click on "Tools" then "Accounts". This will let you set up as many email accounts (one at a time) that you have. Hope this answered your question or that I understood it :huh:

If I understand you correctly, The username and password is for each email. For instance, I have comcast. I have 5 email addresses. each has it's own password and username which I assigned to them when I created them. It will depend on how your ISP handles email addresses (do they assign them or can you)? Are we getting closer to answer :huh:

Closer.....one is assigned by my own ISP but other is assigned by my work even though STMP is my ISP's outgoing mail. I don't need my ISP's name and password which is already set but for my work email is other hand which I still have name and password on my piece of paper from work, NO LUCK!

Looks like I may have to contact my work to get to the bottom of that issue if it has nothing to do with Windows Mail issue. :huh:

You may or may not be able to use your work's email on your IPS. Your work may have a firewall around their servers. In other words you'd have to be physically connected to their network. Alot of companys allow you to receive your email from their servers but don't allow outgoing unless you're physically on their network.

Really? Dang....still, I'd make sure to ask my boss about what you've just mentioned and will report back to you if that can be configured or not. We'll see....

Anyway, thanks. :huh:
