How do I separate email accounts and emails in Outlook?

Posted on 2007-11-21
Last Modified: 2011-10-03

I have several email accounts in my Outlook. Its great that I can receive all of my emails through outlook. But it puts them all together.

Its categorized by:

and so on...

So all of the emails that I received today from several email accounts would go under Today.

Is there a way to change that?

I would like to organize it something like this: GMAIL, YAHOO, HOTMAIL,, etc....
That way all of the gmail will be under GMAIL, all of the yahoo mail will be under YAHOO and so on.

I guess, what I am trying to say is that I need multiple inboxes.

Hello fcruz5,

You need to create folders like Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail and  Then create a mail rule to move emails to to Gmail folder.  Same for the other accounts.

Hope this helps!
