    Multiple Users in Windows Mail

    I have three email addresses for multiple users in our home who use Comcast.
    I have built them all into windows mail. is there any way to download them
    so they don't all go to my inbox?

    Re: Multiple Users in Windows Mail

    Windows Mail puts all email from all accounts into one Inbox.
    You can create a folder for each account, and create message rules to move
    the mail from one account into one of the folders.
    But there is no privacy.
    If you need privacy, create a Vista login account for each user, and set up
    Windows Mail for each user to only access their account.

    Or, you could use the newer Windows Live Mail, which has separate Inboxes,
    etc. for each account, but no privacy.

    Does Windows Mail have identities like Outlook Express, or something similar?

    WM doesn't have identities.

    There is a program that adds that function to WM. I have not tried it.

    No, but it has a separate set of folders for each email account.

    That's Windows Live Mail...
    but it doesn't have identities, either.

    Re: Multiple Users in Windows Mail

    i tried your suggestion and gave each seperate account their own rules and
    now all the emails are going to one account. i have three seperate ones and
    cannot seem to get two of them to go to their own folder, any ideas of what i
    may be doing wrong? Vista seems to be such a challenge.

    Re: Multiple Users in Windows Mail

    message rule for Account1
    1. [x] where the To or CC line contains people
    2. [x] Move it to the specified folder
    3. click on "contains people", add the email address of account1
    ok
    click on "specified folder", select the account1 folder
    4. Name the rule
    OK

    do this for account 2 & 3

    you can test the rules with the "Apply Now" button

    Re: Multiple Users in Windows Mail

    However, those rules won't work when receiving BCC-addressed emails.
    I have better luck by filtering on the account rather than on "people".

    Re: Multiple Users in Windows Mail


    We have 3 e-mail accounts on Windows Mail. I think I am getting my kids
    e-mail every time I am in my "user" account. If the kids are in their
    account, then they get their e-mail. I'm not sure what would happen if
    we were all logged off. It is not a matter of clicking a default
    button, tried that already! Can anyone help? KM
