    I use Outlook Express 6.0 for the majority of my e-mail. I also have 2 other e-mail accounts. Is there any way I could see if I have any e-mail on these 2 when I open Outlook Express 6.0?

    are the other accounts able to use POP - if so then yes - just add another email account

    Hi etaf, I don't know how to add another e-mail account.

    When I went to my O.E.6.0 and clicked on Import Messages the only messages I could import were Microsoft, Endora or Netscape.

    When I went to my O.E. 6.0 and clicked on Mail Account Settings it said No Other E-Mail Accounts Could Be Found.

    you need to add the acounts

    tools
    accounts
    mail
    add
    then go through the setup wizard

    your other emails - do they support POP ?

    etaf, I got as far as the Internet Connection Wizard where it asks for Incoming Mail (POP3, IMAP or HTTP) server.

    It then asks for Outgoing Mail (SMTP) server.

    I do not know what to put in for these 2 questions!

    How do I find out this info?

    I've done this so many times I can do it in my sleep.

    1)Open Outlook,go to Tools/Accounts,on the Mail tab,highlight the offending account and click the Remove button.

    2)Now click the Add button and select Mail.

    3)The Internet Wizard pops up and asks what name you want to appear in the From field of emails that you send-type your name.Click Next

    4)Now you are asked to type in your email address-type it in.Click next

    5)Now here's where it can get tricky,call your ISP and ask them what to put in the incoming and outgoing server boxes.eg.I use Shaw cable,and my incoming server is a POP3 so thats what I select from the drop box at the top.In both incoming and outgoing server boxes I type in "shawmail" and click Next
    Your ISP will tell you what to type into those two boxes.

    6)Now,in the Account Name box, type in just the part of your email address before the @ symbol.In the Password box type your password and make sure the Remember Password box has a check in it.Click next.Click Finished and you're done.

    7)Do the above for any other accounts you want to set up.

    rude, thank you so much for your detailed instructions.

    I have printed them out and as dumb as I am I'm pretty sure I can follow them.

    Thanks DCommon for the info.

    I went to the url you suggested but it did not list the e-mail servers I wish to add to my Outlook Express 6.0.

    I wish to add irishnation.com, safe-mail.net and ulltimateemail.com.

    I've sent my ISP an e-mail asking how to do the above and am waiting an answer.

    These appear to be free web-based e-mail addresses. They don't have POP access which means you can't add them to Outlook Express or any such e-mail client. You can only access them on the web.

    You can double, you just need to make sure you select the right mail type when setting up the address. In outlook express just change the "incoming mail server" from pop to imap or http.
