    Windows Mail - separate accounts/identities

    I've set up my Windows Mail with 2 separate email accounts, but all the
    incoming mail for both accounts goes to the default acount inbox. How do I
    separate these 2 accounts so each has its own inbox requiring a password for
    access? I put in passwords for each account when I set them up. Please help!!

    Re: Windows Mail - separate accounts/identities

    Windows Mail has no Identities, and no password. The passwords you entered
    were to access your email server accounts.

    Here are a few alternatives...

    1. Create folders for each email account and create message rules to move
    email addressed to each account into the appropriate folder.

    2. Create and use different Windows Users, each with WM accessing only
    their email account. (This is how you set a password to keep other users
    out.)

    3. Use the newer Windows Live Mail which has separate folders for each
    account, but no identities or password:

    4. Purchase WMIDs which adds identities to WM
