Outlook Express Identity Problem

By Harringtone
Nov 30, 2005
  1. I run Windows XP Pro (SP2) and OUtlook Express 6. I have two user accounts. I've been using Outlook Express for years on this system. Yesterday I created a new email account for my kid (gmail pop3) and set up Outlook Express in her XP account. When I went back to my XP account and tried to start up OE it asked me to pick an identity (Main Identity was the only choice) and enter a password - ouch. So now I can't access my old OE account.

    Needless to say I did not create Identities prior to setting up my kids account. I never created a password for Main Identity.

    Any clue on how to get to my original OE account???
