this is easy to do.

in your email software just create a new user account and enter the details for your wife's email account

Tonka, it may help if you say which email client you're using.

Outlook Express?
Outlook?

If you're using Outlook Express you may want to look at the 'Profiles' options. Unfortunately I haven't used Outlook Express for some time so can't help too much.

If you both use the same PlusNet account then you'll need to set up a mailbox for the wife to receive her emails into.

Hope that's of some help

Also have you actually created a named mailbox for here to use on the Plusnet portal - see Email settings on the left. Just create a new mailbox, give it a password then setup a new account in OE and use username+mailboxname and the password you set to collect email from that mailbix.

Also look at the plusnet help pages on email, they explain what to do in detail.
