Search for e-mail addresses?

DH & I are concerned our daughter might have an e-mail set up on this computer that we don't know exists.  She usually uses e-mail a lot but we do monitor things (she's 13) and she's not using her e-mail much at all for a few months.  Is there a way to see if there are any accounts on this computer we don't know about?  We just want her safe.  Seems like there should be some simple way to do a scan or something.

You are right if she might not be using the one from your ISP but one such as Yahoo or Hotmail.


Now I am sure she is a smart computer girl but we can hope she don't think about it all the time. As soon as she gets off the computer go into your internet and check the history. If it is empty you know she is smart enough to clear that when she is done.

Does she have her own computer in her own room?

Maybe she has given up on email and has gone to IMing......do you have MSN messenger or Yahoo messenger? There are others but those are the 2 main ones.


Just something to check out.
