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?

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.

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.

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

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

OK, bare with me. When I go into tools, then accounts, I see the mailbox
and I am shawmail default, then each kid is shawmail(1)/shawmail(2).
Don't really know what a seperate Window Users account should look
like, or if this has answered your question. What next? Thanks, KM

Hi, thanks for the quick reply back.
I was unsure of some of your terms only because I didn't set my e-mail
up (my Internet provider did) so I had to do some digging and figure out
how I was set up. Anyways, each one of our e-mail accounts is set to our
own name as default (or, in other words, we all have seperate accounts)
but remember when I mentioned reading myself as default and each kid
(shawmail 1/shawmail 2), well , I think that was the problem. If each
of us should only have our own name as default in our user accounts,
then why were my kids names in mine? I deleted them in my account and
now I'm just waiting to see if that did the trick. All our user
accounts are back to having our names only in our mailboxes. I guess
the only problem now is, how did they get in mine? Thank-you. KM

I have the opposite problem -- everything is getting categorized under the different accounts when I don't want it to. Reason being, some of the accounts that Windows Live is attempting to categorize under don't exist anymore and consequently the Sent Items are being lost! Is there any way to tell Windows Live to consolidate the views so that all e-mails sent and received show up in only one inbox / sent items folder?

"Windows Live" as in the Windows Live Mail (WLM) program?
This newsgroup is dedicated to the Windows Mail program.
You will get more help by posting that question in the WLM newsgroup:

http://www.microsoft.com/communitie...dg=microsoft.public.windows.live.mail.desktop
or via your news reader: news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.windows.live.mail.desktop

Incidentally, Windows Live is the name for a whole suite of programs,
see http://www.windowslive.com/get
You need to be careful about specifying the exact name of the program
you are talking about.

Point taken. I was referring to Windows Live Mail which I'm trying to use since Windows Mail doesn't provide the basic functionality formerly available with Outlook Express.
