    In the past whenever I closed outlook express the identity was logged off automatically. I now am using OE 6 and for some reason it has stopped logging off unless I use the "exit & log-off" option under FILE. The "use this identity when starting" box is not checked. How do I correct this problem? Alex

    Hi ALEXSTONE

    Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

    In Outlook Express,
    File > Identities > Manage Identities
    remove the checkmark for Use this Identity when starting a program
    Close

    Then close Outlook Express using the X button.

    Reboot.

    Open Outlook Express, you should see the window with the Identities listed.

    There is a script you can download from this site:
    Force Identity Logon
    It forces Outlook Express to ask which Identity is to be logged in each time Outlook Express is opened.
    The script clears the registry of the last Identity used, which is shown on that site.
    I have used it and the script works far better than the method above.

    Let us know if it works for you or not.

    The check was removed and it did not help. What and how do I access the "script".
    Thanks Alex

    I found the script on another web site and it works great. Thanks again, Alex
