I'll try to explain as best I can: In a [drunken stupor], I created a new identity on Outlook Express (V. 6 I beleive). After a few weeks, I decided to check for e-mail on the alternate identity. I went to File, Switch Identities, and typed in the user name. Unfortunately, I forgot the password, but somehow the program let me bypass entering a password after several failed attempts, switching my identity. I was able to get into my drafts folder and save an unsent e-mail to another folder. Now I cannot get into Outlook Express at all to switch back, and the program freezes up when attempting to load.

Can anyone help me? By the way, just kidding about being in a drunken stupor... perhaps I should try that, though.

Thanks much!

save yourself time and effort, rather then figuring out whats wrong with the application just go ahead and re-install outlook express. that should fix any application errors and set you back to your default settings. although you may have to re-add the identities.
