Hello all,

I've recently acquired the use of another computer at my job, and I'm in the process of swapping all of my files and data from my old computer to the new model. The only thing I can't seem to figure out is how to deactivate my e-mail account on the old computer and have all my e-mails be received on the new computer. On the old computer I went to Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings under Edit in my Netscape Mail (Try not to laugh) and cleared the account settings page. Next, I opened up Outlook on the new computer, went to E-Mail Accounts under Tools, and then switched the primary e-mail address from that of my former boss (it's her computer that I received) to my own. Trouble is, when I had a co-worker send me a few test e-mails, they would only be received on the old computer, not the new one.

unless I have got the wrong end of the stick (?) I think you are still needing to program Outlook on the new computer with the e mail addresses you wish to receive e mail?

Yup, that's correct. Sorry if I was vague at all, I was typing it all in a rush.

Have you successfully sent e-mail from your address on the new computer?

No dice. It just sent from my former boss' e-mail account, despite changing the account to mine.

I've used only web-based mail for the last few years, but my recollection of Outlook Express is that there were a number of settings that need to be changed, such as incoming and outgoing host, etc. Outlook operates on the same principle.

So I'm wondering if you're sure you changed all the appropriate settings and not just the e-mail address itself?

I'm positive that's the case. Problem is, I have no idea what else to change.
