I have two users on my computer. If I change one user account to
corporate/workgroup mode, does it also change the other user to the
same? I would like to have POP3 for one userand corporate/workgroup
for another.

Please advise and thank you.

Outlook 2002 SP3.

I have two users on my computer, i.e. two "accounts". If I want to go
to another user, I must Start|Log Off|Click user icon, to log on to
the other user "account." This is found in Control Panel|User
Accounts, (using WinXP Home).

I use a VPN from home to access the work intranet. That's why I have
two user accounts. I have an exchange server at work I would like to
access from home using Outlook. When I open Outlook from the work
"user account" and attempt to add the work email account, I'm told I
must be using Corporate/Workgroup mode and must add the email account
from Control Panel|Mail.

Thx.

Check your facts, please. Outlook 2002 has no such thing as
"Corporate/Workgroup mode" and could not possibly give such an error
message.
Why does using VPN require you to have a separate Windows logon account?

To answer this specific question, yes, if you have two windows accounts and
a version of Outlook that supports corp or imo mode, each account will use
the same Outlook mode.
