I have connected my wife's windows 7 laptop to the internet following the details as described by windows 7. The system used is home networking and I installed incredimail on her laptop while my desktop has outlook express. I did this without informing my ISP.
My problem is that my email can be received and read on my wife's laptop and vice versa. By the way I am on ADSL and all I used was a 10 metre CAT 5E PVC UTP Patch Cable from my Adsl equipment to the Laptop.
Any ideas how I can stop my wife reading my email and vice-versa. Thanks guys.

You control what email is accessed on each PC when you set up each mail program.

Maybe, what you want to do is change the notebook's email setup to "leave a copy on the email server" rather than download it and delete it from the server?

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Hmm. Do you not have to log in to retrieve your e-mail? If not, you should set it up to do so. Rather than storing the password on the computer, you should memorize it. Each of you should have separate e-mail accounts and passwords in this situation.
