Add New Accounts or New Identities?

I am contemplating subscribing to a DSL provider. One of the features of this subscription is 4 Email addresses.

I now run MS Outlook Express for Windows XP Home edition.

Would I add new accounts or would I add new identities to work with these new multiple Email addresses?

Once you have your new email addresses, click on Tools, Accounts, Add, Mail, and enter the appropriate info (display name, email addresses, server addresses).

Add new accounts if you want all mails to these 4 addresses in the same inbox.

Add new identities if you want the mails to these 4 addresses store seperately .

So percy_k, I would have four, separately named mailboxes (inboxes)?
