Can't delete identity in Outlook Express 5

  dangermouse 22:29 07 Mar 03

I have more than one identity in OE. I can add and remove them at will, except the one using the 'local folders' section - the POP account. All the Hotmail ones are OK.

I can't remove the other identity. When I choose File/Identities/Manage Identites and highlight the one I want to delete, the 'Remove' tab doesn't highlight. The only one that does is the 'Properties' box and that only asks if I want to set a password. This identity wasn't pre-loaded, I did it myself after a new installation of IE 5.5SP2.

Any ideas ??

It wouldn't delete because I had added some Hotmail accounts under the same identity. Once they were deleted - and reestablished under individual identities - I could then delete the main identity.
