My girlfriend and I share Outlook Express within the same computer. Have created setaprate identities for each. I wanted to set up TB for my girlfrined and keep Outlook Express for myself (I use Hotmail) to have both programs open at the same time and avoid having to switch identities all the time. When I first installed TB I bypassed the import wizard in the hopes that I could find more specific import options within the program itself. I left OE open with my girlfriend's identity active. I First imported the address book but noticed that all addresses (from her and mine Identity) were imported. Then I imported messages but only my messages would be imported. I uninstalled TB and reinstalled in the hopes to try the import wizard but upon reinstallation the wizard would not come up. Also I noticed that the address book, with all the mixed up addresses (hers and mine) was still there and had not been uninstalled. I tried several permutations: leaving my identity active, closing OE with one or the other identity active. But invariably only my messages would be imported.
