Dear chrome2000,

Generally it should go that way ..But you can create rules so that each can go to its inbox

Thanks,

Do you want both email addresses (accounts) to be combined into one outlook express mailbox? If so, then you can only cfg outgoing email for one of those addresses. So if you wanted to reply to an email from the opposite address, then the recipient would see your "new" email address (the first one cfg'd). If that's what you want, then rules can be setup to sort all emails accordingly, so email add1 goes to INBOX and email add2 goes to INBOX2 (you make this folder).

If you want to manage your email addresses separately, then create "Identities"! Go to FILE Menu and click on Identities and add new identity for email2. You can cfg options for startup too. Also, see that the File Menu allows you to switch identities on the fly! Too bad regular Outlook does not do it that way.

To sort email... click on the header bar tab (like "From") to sort ascending or click again to reverse. Also, can go to View | Current View and customize current view for your desired sort / view.

Ciao!
