    You have done this and still are having problems?

    To add a new identity

    On the File menu, point to Identities, and then click Add New Identity.
    Type the name of the new user.
    If you want to include a password for this identity, select the Require a password option, and then enter a password.
    Outlook Express asks you if you want to log on as the new user. If you answer yes, you will be prompted for information about your Internet connection. If you answer no, the current user remains logged on.

    To switch to a different identity

    On the File menu, click Switch Identity.
    Select the user you want to switch to.

    this statement just confused me. if your OE is setup as your hotmail than there might have been a problem with how you set it up.

    can you clarify for me?

    Make sure you have your incoming mail server correct. You may need to contact your isp if you are not sure.

    Is it only your hotmail account that you cannot receive emails from on OE?
