    One ISP, One Outlook, Three Address (Outlook 98)

    Our ISP allows us to have a primary email address and several secondary addresses. This could be handy for "His", "Hers", and "Theirs" mail systems. However, when I open Outlook 98, it doesn't give me a choice of which email address to use when sending out messages. It does allow me to select which address to use when receiving messages.

    Is there a way to open Outlook 98 using just one of the addresses, so we can receive and send messages using "His@(ISP.net)", "Hers@(ISP.net)", or "Theirs@(ISP.net)"?

    I'm not sure if this will work or not, I'm running 2000 and I only have the one email so I can't test it. Try "Tools"..."Options"..."Mail Services" and select "Prompt for a profile to be used" (Start up settings).

    Good Luck

    I never used Outlook 98, so this thought is based on a feature of Outlook 2000 configured for Internet Mail Only mode. Once you have all the accounts set up, start a new message. Is there is drop down arrow on the right side of the Send button that lets you choose the account to send from? (P.S. Slipstick says you should.)
