Windows XP logon


R

Rodney

I am the only perosn who uses my computer and I find the
logon screen totally unnecessary and a pain in the butt.
Do I really need this? Can I get rid of it period? How
would this affect Outlook Express? I have express set up
to receive mail from my website. Are identities in
Outlook Express the same as my Windows logon ID? I just
want to turn my computer on and let it boot up straight to
my desktop screen. Any help is appreciated.

I'm not completely sure but I believe the identities in OE are independent
of the logon. Suppose, you are the only user account but you someone else
uses your account as well and you set a separate identity in OE. That
person doesn't log on but they nonetheless have a separate ID in Outlook
Express which, I would assume is what you are doing now. The only
difference would be that you no longer are required to log on to the account
as XP is booting directly into it.

If you want to be sure, go to the following website, scroll the list on the
left to windows.inetexplorer.ie6_outlookexpress, select it and try your
question there:
