separate each email account to different folder

Hi,

How can I, if possible, separate an email account with its own folder. say i have joe@blow.com and foe@moe.com accounts and want in the "inbox" and "outbox" to have 2 folders, one for joe and the other for foe. now when i down load or send email, i would like the emails to be separated to its own folder. i dont want to have to sit there and separate by hand which emails go to which accounts. any help is gladly taken

thanks

ffe,
The easiest method is to create a new folder for joe and a new folder for foe. The method is similar to creating a new folder in windows explorer.

Once you do this, select an e-mail sent to joe@mail.com and then select the organize icon in Outlook(the yellow building block) or select it from menu Tools -> Organize. The resulting dialogue box will provide the options to have all mail addressed to joe@mail.com go directly into the new Joe folder. It will also allow the "rule" to be run in your Inbox.

You can modify the rule using the advanced option witht the Organize Tool.

Im sorry i didnt mention i have outlook express, if that makes any difference. I went to tools--> but dont see organize, am i missing something or outlook express doesnt have this? also, will this "rule" do my sent emails to a folder?

Did you check the help, under the topic organize. As a side note I used to use Express, and I was hesitant to use Outlook but I will never go back. If you have it that is.

Go to Tools - Message Rules -> Mail
Pane 1.
Select the box "Where the To line contains people"

Pane 2.
Select "Move to the Specified Folder"

Then go to
Pane 3.
Click the hyperlink "Contains People"
Either add Joe@mail.com or if it is your address book pick it from there.

Click the hyperlink "specified" folder.
Pick the new folder you created for Joe
---------------------------------------------------
Repeat as required.

Yes, the sent issue is a little trickier, I'll give it a shot tomorrow. It may not be possible. I manually do it at work. But I'll get back to you....

So,
First , is the recieved mail working? I forgot this one, if you haven't already do so give each rule a name.
---------------------------------------------
Lets try sorting out the Sent Mail.
I suggest Creating a JoeSent and a MoeSent, otherwise just go with your orginal.

Go to, in Pane 1.
Select "Where the From line contains people "

Pane 2.
Select "Move to the Specified Folder"

Then go to
Pane 3.
Click the hyperlink "Contains People"
Either add Joe@mail.com or if it is your address book pick it from there.

Click the hyperlink "specified" folder.
Pick the JoeSent Folder.

---------------------------------------------------
Repeat for the MoeSent Folder.

=====================================
Essentially the rules work based upon 1. the To or From fields, 2. the e-mail address, and moving it to the selected folder.

You can organize you mail using colors, using similar steps.

I am just happy to help.

Experts-Exhange is good, different areas are better than others with people reponding. I have one currently in the Outlook area and not a reply so far. It is a tad complicated. I find the Excel area hands down the best. Take care,
