Multiple Email Accounts


R

I have created 4 email accounts and emails from all accounts are being
deposited into the same inbox. Outlook express allowed me to manage these
through identities so that each email account had it's own inbox, drafts,
sent, etc. Is this possible with Windows Mail?

That solved the inbound problem, but now when I create a new emial, the
"from" address is the primary. How can I send from the indivual accounts so
that any replies are directed to the appropriate folder??

Otherwise, create an "Inbox" for each address and use message rules to
divert the messages to their respective folders.

When you create a message, at the far right of the From field is a
drop-down arrow. Choose the account you want to send from. (It was that
way before changing anything).

Thanks. I see it. The multiple identities in OE didn't require this so I
wasn't looking for it.

Are these differances related to the Vista version of email?? If I went to
Windows 7 would I get Outlook express back???

The Vista version of e-mail is Windows Mail. XP was the last version of
Windows to use OE as it was part of IE6. All production of OE and WinMail
ceased in June, 2006. You cannot use OE in Win7. The OE and WinMail
successor is Windows Live Mail.

Windows Live Mail (Overview, Features & Download):

With OE, you could have separate identities but you did not /have/ to. If
you had all accounts in one identity then you would have seen the
drop-down arrow.

With Windows Mail, the multiple identity function was removed. That is why
I gave you the link & multiple Inbox workaround.
