Email in Office 2007

    I have two people using this computer.

    Is there any way to set up email accounts in office 2007 so one Windows 7
    user account person gets only their email and me, the other Windows 7 user
    account, gets only my emails from office 2007?

    The Windows 7 user accounts are set up for both of us. Office 2007 is
    installed but not yet active pending question above.

    I have tried before in Vista and both Windows users got both email accounts
    in Office 2007 displayed to them. Now I have upgraded to 7 and before I go
    to far and screw things up........

    If a win user configures Outllook when logged onto their Win user account,
    then outlook will be seperate from any other Win User account.
    This assumes the mail acounts are unique for each user, (generally means
    seperate passwords) and not catchall accounts
    ie if you access you mail via its web interface and you see mail sent to
    both accounts, then you have catchall accounts

    As with previous versions of Windows and Office, each user, when starting
    Outlook for the first time, will be presented with a Wizard enabling them to
    set up their email details. So long as you provide your details under your
    user account, and the other user's details under their account, the two
    should be completely separate.

    If this didn't work in Vista, something is wrong. Are all your User folders
    in the default location (i.e. C:/Users\<username>)? I found that when I
    moved mine to another drive the permissions didn't get copied across,
    enabling all users to see each other's files. If you haven't moved them
    this shouldn't be an issue.

    Why not just set rules when mail comes for one user, it goes to their folder,
    and another folder for the other user? Look up "Rules" It's so easy, a
    caveman can do it!

    Thanks!

    I think the idea was not to be able to see each other's mail. That's why he
    set up different user accounts.

    Well, we have two user profiles under Windows, and Office is installed on
    the computer for both, and when we each launch Outlook 2007, it contains
    separate e-mail accounts, so never the twain shall meet.

    Now--I'm not using Windows 7, but I'm using Vista, and the same worked under
    Windows XP and 2000, as well.

    Yes, that was my point. I was replying to flemingisland1 who suggested a
    rule that moved them to different folders under the same user account. Not
    what the OP was looking for.
