You need to set up a 'Message Rule' for each incoming email address.
In Outlook Express, go to 'Tools' - 'Message Rules' - 'Mail'. In section 1, select "Where the To line contains people". Now in section 2, select "Move it to the specified folder". In section 3 you will now see two highlighted items which you click on to let you specify an email address and a mail folder for that email address. You need to repeat this process for each person you have made separate folders for.

:tazz: I have multiple identities on Microsoft Outlook. The "main identity" got no spam but a secondary one I created and set as my default is inundated daily with junk mail. I want to go back to using the "main identity" as my default and kill the second one, but when I go up to "file/manage identities" menu and either try to switch identities or delete an identity, the one I want to kill is grayed out and not an option to do anything to. I've already checked the little box that says "use this identity when starting a program" several times hoping to reset the "main identity" as my default, but whenever I relaunch Outlook it launches in the unwanted identity, not the "main identity." Help!

please don't 'hijack' someone else's topic or thread by posting your own problem which is completely unrelated. Create a new thread of your own or your problem may be ignored.
