    I HAVE SEVERAL EMAIL ADDRESS AND USE OUTLOOK 2000. I SET UP A BUNCH OF ACCOUNTS AND SET THE OUTGOING SMTP SETTING FOR WHAT EVER DSL PROVIDER IS AT THE LOCATION I USE THE COMPUTER AT, AND THE POP3 FOR THE ACTUAL ACCOUNT I WANT TO CHECK, EVEN IF IT IS WITH ANOTHER PROVIDER. THIS MAKES IT SO I CAN REPLY TO EMAILS AND SEND EMAIL. IN ACCOUNT PROPERTIES, I CAN UNCHECK “INCLUDE THIS ACCOUNT WHEN RECEIVING MAIL OR SYNCHRONIZING” TO DISABLE AN ACCOUNT.

    I JUST GOT A NEW LAPTOP TO USE AT A FEW LOCATIONS. I FIGURED I COULD SET UP DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS IN OUTLOOK FOR THE SAME EMAIL ADDRESS AND SET EA WITH THE SMTP FOR THE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS AND JUST UN-CHECK “INCLUDE THIS ACCOUNT WHEN RECEIVING MAIL OR SYNCHRONIZING” AS I HAVE DONE IN THE PAST. THE PROBLEM IS, NEW COMPUTER CAME WITH OFFICE XP AND I CANT FIND THAT SETTING, DOSE ANYONE KNOW WHERE IT IS? IF I HAVE ALL THREE ACCOUNTS SET UP AT THE SAME TIME I GET THE SAME EMAIL THREE TIMES (YEA … A BIG DUH) IF I COULD EASILY DISABLE THE REDUNDANT ACCOUNTS THIS WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

    XP uses some damn grouping thing. It sucks. I went back to 2000 because I hated that issue, and some others.

    Try checking out the grouping option.
