Step 4: Click NO to not switch to your new account.

Step 5: To switch to your second e-mail account click: File > Switch Identity...>

Step 6: Click your identity to highlight it> Click OK to switch to your identity. (Your second e-mail account)

The Top of Outlook Express should display your second e-mail account. (My second e-mail account is Mike D.)

Step Step 7: Go to Tools > Accounts

Step 8: Click on the Mail tab. Click and remove all accounts that you do not use AND any "fltg" "pop3.fltg" or "mail.fltg" accounts.

Under "Outgoing mail (SMTP) server" enter smtp.fltg.net

Click Next

Step 13: Next to "Account name" enter your e-mail address in lowercase letters. Enter your password in all lowercase letters. Click Next. Now click Finish.

You're all set!
