It's a bit unclear to me what you are asking so I'll do the best I can to answer your questions based on what I interpret what you are asking.

You can add another email account to Outlook Express to reflect your new ISP providers.
OR you can edit the email account settings in the previous ISP settings to add the new provider settings.. To do this, open up OE.
Go to the previous account.

Choose Tools/Accounts/Mail tab.

Highlight the name of the old account. Choose properties.

General Tab /Mail Account-If needed, you can change or keep the current name as the name you want to refer to the servers. Example, the name in my OE is mail.comcast.net I could change it to anything I want, say Evie's Mail. If you have the isp in the current name, you can change it to include the name of your new ISP or bignight mail.

Email tab, change it to your new IP email name, make sure to include @whatever.com/.net

Servers tab, change the incoming and outgoing servers to those your new isp recommends.

Enter your account name in the account name field. This would be the part before @whatever.com/.net

Next enter the password for the new account.

Click APPLY. Close out properties.

Close out then restart OE. Send a test message to your self from the new account to the new account. If it sends and your receive it, you're good to go.

The advantages of doing it the way is mail from your old ISP will still be there, as will the address book.

No, your other pc will not see that you have set up a new account. You will have to repeat the procedure on any computer that has OE set up.

If you have problems or receive error messages, post back here and we will help you.
