If I have two accounts, lets say accountA@abc.com and accountB@abc.com and add both accounts to Outlook Express. Mails that are received by both accounts are transferred into the common inbox and it could get annoying trying to distinguish every time which mail is for which account. Intead, I wanted to know if you could split into two different accounts basically having their own folders etc. So for accountA@abc.com it would store all emails received, sent, deleted etc. in a certain area and same for accountB@abc.com in a different area. If you've configured Outlook Express to recieve your hotmail emails you'll probably be in a better position to understand what I'm talking about. Please let me know. I'm using Windows XP Home Edition.

Thanks

You should be able to set up a message rule that redirects incoming messages to accountA@abc.com to one folder and accountB@abc.com to another.

So try this: Add two new folders (right click over Inbox, New Folder - you'll be prompted for the folder name and where to place the folder). Then click the Tools menu, Message Rules, Mail. In the New Mial Rule dialog box, section 1, check Where the To line contains people. In section 2, check your desired action, such as Move to Folder. In section 3, click the link for 'contains people' and enter the email address (accountA@abc.com). Then click the link for 'specified' folder and choose the new folder.

As new mail is delivered into OE, the rules should kick in and redirect them based on the rule.
