    I am running both, mostly due to the commercial nature of Outlook.

    My question is this, with both running, and sharing the same mail account,

    1)both email clients receive the same message?

    I keep a "Sent message folder", it seems to work, *just* for the messages
    sent from that client. Is there anyway to combine these?

    Thanks in advance.....

    Why an earth would you want to run two email clients on the same PC,
    presumably, connected to the same account?

    combine with what?

    (Combine the sent items in Outlook with the sent items in OE6.)

    Only if you configure your account options to "leave messages on server".
    Not automatically. I suppose you could manually work out that kind of thing,
    but then you'd have to manually do it again everytime you used the other
    email client.

    There is absolutely no need to run two email clients - you'll just confuse
    things. If you need the "commerical nature" features in Outlook, then use
    that. If you don't need them, the use OE.

    Well you are both right.

    But, in my OE, I have multiple accounts using HTTP mail, or, more accurately
    Hotmail. I was under the impression that the only mail client that I can use
    to retrieve email from hotmail is OE. Plus, I use OE to read my newsgroups.

    Yes, leaving messages on the server is an option I have not pondered.

    HTTP mail is different from POP. You are not retrieving HTTP mail
    through outlook.

    No. You can retrieve any POP email through any mail client.

    You can use any of a number of different newsgroup clients to read

    Ah - yes. The "grandfathered" Hotmail accounts. I have one too. So that's
    about the only reason I can see using OE if you prefer Outlook's PIM

    (Bad Hotmail doesn't work that way in Vista's "Windows Mail" - no HTTP
    accounts. I had to finally give up and put a shortcut on my desktop for the
    Hotmail web interface.)

    And Outlook would automatically call OE for your newsgroups, even if you
    aren't using it for email.
    Since I sometimes check my home email at work, I have mine set to leave
    messages for 10 days, or to delete them when deleted from the email client.
    So if I check my POP accounts when I'm away from home, I still get a copy on
    my home PC when I get back.
