Windows 7: Sign In Hotmail - Different Accounts

04 Apr 2015   #1

Sign In Hotmail - Different Accounts

I and wife have two accounts: [email protected] and [email protected].
I have Win7-64 and she Win8.

My wife (and I for that matter!) are not good at computers. Therefore I tend to check her mail from her Win8. However it would be convenient to be able to sign in from mine but there appears to be no way I can enter her address as only my account opens.

Appreciate assistance please

Do you use the Web email page
, or do you use a client program such as Windows Live Mail ?

I normally use a client program such as MS Outlook, Live mail, Thunderbird, etc., and can access multiple email accounts.
But, i can also login to the web page with different accounts.

Thanks for prompt reply.

I have tried logging through and win live mail. MY email page opens.
I use MS Outlook 2003 with ISP Virgin Media who, presumably, directs to MS Outlook. Mail is also retained in the VM Browser - [email protected]

I use LastPass to retain my sites/passwords.

I have MS Office Outlook 2010 client email, and i have several accounts setup so i see email from all of them.
In Outlook 2003 open Help and search for Add account.
Hopefully you can find instructions for adding accounts.

If you Sign Out of webmail, can you sign in with a different account ? (see screen print below)
I don't use LastPass, and I don't use "Keep me signed in".

This is the address i have for webmail:
