YES!! I have a very similar problem when using 2 accounts, especially with
mail for my wife and I. If she is logged in and using the computer, she can
send and recieve mail w/out difficulty, but when she is logged off and I am
on the system, all her mail comes to my inbox..If no one is logged in, all
mail comes to my in-box, despite checking all pop-server and smtp server info
was correctly listed for each of us.. Very frustrating, also spell checker
will not work in windows mail, get some kind of error about "cannot find
english dictionary..or something similar..
