If you need a higher version of Outlook then Outlook 2000 you'll need to buy at least the upgrade version of that higher version of MS Office (XP, 2002, 2003). But Microsoft won't object if you buy the full version.

So: up to the shop and see what they have to offer you.

I don't have an opinion on IF you need a higher version of Outlook; in that respect I trust what you say. And I don't know at all what you mean with "each email needs its own outlook application". What's wrong with using multiple XP users each with it's own Outlook 2002 database and email-address. That's an identity at OS level, not at application (Outlook) level.

Hope this helps.

After some 10 years, the concept of identity in the applications Outlook and Outlook Express is in there but the brutal reality is that I have never heard that Microsoft fixed it. I can offer why that may be so. Since the current OS (XP) offers multiple users then they rely on that for the multiple user support. The other item of switching identity may or may not function or function as you wish.

I have no cure for this issue save to use XP's multiple users (that works) but swithing identities in Outlook seems to be spastic at times.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
