You must be using SmartZone for email access. Are you having any particular issues with it that make you not satisfied with performance?
Outlook EXPRESS has been replaced with Windows Live Mail. OUTLOOK, which is a totally different email client, is still available.
With WLM, you set up an account for each email address. Mail from the various addresses are not lumped into one inbox, each account has its own. However, you are correct that there is no password for each individual account and yes, everyone will be able to read mail for another person. And even if you did set it up to ask for a password, the mail of the last person to use WLM would open up briefly before the enter password box pops up. (The same thing happened with multiple accounts on Outlook Express) Just for fun, I changed my WLM settings to require a password. When it opens to my primary account mail, the password box pops up, and I cancelled it. I then clicked on my secondary account mail, no password box opened, but my mail did.
To require a password: Open up WLM. RIGHT CLICK on the account name on the left side of the page.
On mine, I would RIGHT click on Comcast (my account name). Choose Properties/Servers tab. UNCHECK Remember password. Click Apply. See if it works for you.
Here is what it looks like. Both of the accounts are mine-the first one is my primary account, the other one is my secondary account. But for other people this would not be practical if everyone uses the same desktop and they wanted email to stay private.
As you can see, anyone can click on an account and read the mail.
You could use another email client, but I cannot recommend one that would keep mail private because I'm not familiar with any of them.
