Read Multiple Mailboxes in Outlook

Hi.

I run XP at home and each user has their own account in XP.

I have set up the mail boxes under my user name as below.

username
username+dad
username+mum
username+daughter

Now my outlook is set to : -

User Information
Your name - Jeff Key
E-Mail Address username@username.plus.com

Logon Information
user name username+dad
password ************


When retrieve mail I get mail for username+dad only as expected.
the problem is I have been sent mail to username@username.plus.com but cannot retrieve it using outlook.
I know its there by looking in the inbox of Web mail.


Questions
1) How do I retrieve both username and username+dad at the same time in outlook.

2) Is there a way I can receive all the mail to my username, including the individual mail boxes so I can vet my daughter mail.

Thanks.

you can do an account for each user mailbox in outlook and get it to collect mail from all accounts at the same time. include all accounts when sending/recieving mail
