    Hi there

    Has anyone else tried to set up multiple HTTP mail accounts on OL2K2?

    I have tried to link into two different hotmail accounts and OL will only connect to the first I set up. If I remove the first the second then works but I can't have more than one.

    Also I have several POP accounts that all work fine, but every now and again I get the enter password dialogue box for an account. I think that when the mail server is busy OL times out and assumes that the password is incorrect, however I can't just hit OK to try again I have to retype the password. Once the box pops up it holds up mail on any other accounts till I clear it.

    I am running with all the current patches and hot fixes from M$, I have also searched the knowledge base but I can't find any relevant postings.

    Anyone having a similar issue or know of a fix?

    I had the same issues with Outlook 2002. I tried Outlook Express. Seems to work better for multiple accounts. Give that a try.

    Thanks, that was my next (last option). I was hoping to stick to OL but I guess I can just use OLE for HTTP.

    All I can add is "multiple hotmail accounts worked fine for me in OL2K2". Outlook will startup rather slow as it needs to log-in to all those accounts. Had 3 of them installed at a friends house.

    Kind regards,
