Are you using Outlook Express v. 6?

by nepenthe0 In reply to How to hide my e-mail add ...

OE v.6 allows one to snoop on others by switching the identity of the OE account.

According to your post, others are able to login under your User Name. If you allow others to do this, you are inviting anyone to look through your files, including your e-mail.

If you want privacy, the first thing you must do is password protect your User account and not disclose the password.

Next, remove your identity from Outlook Express. Retrieve your e-mail directly from the Internet Service Provider that hosts your e-mail service. Be sure your ISP account password isn't shared. If necessary, change the password.
