Hola everyone,

My name is Marcos and I'm writing from Argentina.

I'm using Outlook 2000 and I'm trying to configure two new e-mail accounts.

I could add the two accounts but all new messages come into one Inbox folder.

Does anybody know how to make each account have its own folders and its own identity?

Thanks a lot for your help!

M :p

Outlook doesn't support seperate identities but you can set up seperate folders for each account and then use Mail Rules to tell Outlook how to sort the messages as they come in.

To set up a new folder, right click on either "Personal Folders" or "Inbox," depending on where you want the new folders to be, choose "New Folder" and type a name of the folder created.

Then create the new accounts.

Once you have the folders set up, go to Tools>Rules Wizard. Set up a new rule for each account:
1. First window, select "Check messages when they arrive"
2. Second window, top pane, check "when received through the specified account"; bottom pane, click on the word "specified" and enter the name of the account
3. Third window, top pane, check "move it to the specified folder"; bottom pane click on the word "specified" and point it at the new folder you made for that account.
4. Fourth window, if none apply, don't check any of them
5. Fifth window, be sure that "turn on this rule" is checked and "run this rule now" is checked if you want Outlook to sort the messages you already have.
