    I have 2 email addresses through att.net and when I added them to my Outlook Express 5 I get all the mail at one address no matter which one it was sent to. Please let me know how to solve this problem. Thank you.

    Did you add them as seperate accounts, tools, accounts, mail tab then add account?

    You could see if your ISP supports what is known as a Virtualized Login.

    Say I registered with such an ISP with [email protected] With a virtualized login, my family could get a seperate username to access the net. For instance, I could login under [email protected], and my dad could register with [email protected]

    A side note: Just realised that corrosive.com is avaliable... :D

    I am going to assume something here ... that you have separate accounts and that it is just a matter of all mail going to your default inbox folder ...

    1. File / New folder ... create folders for each account
    2. Tools Message Rules / Mail ... create rules to send incoming Mail
    - Where the TO or CC contains People
    (click on the "underlined" and type in the eMail address)
    - Move it to the specified folder
    (click on the "underlined" and select the folder)

    Name your rule ... when mail comes in, it will be automatically moved to that folder


    File / Identites
    ... You could set up separate Identities and put the accounts under these - it is easy to switch back and forth

    am I on the right track?

    Thanks for your responses............I have set up separate accounts for each address but I haven't done anything with rules so I'll look into that and keep you posted. If anything else helpful comes to mind please let me know! Mary
