    There is no identities feature in WM, as there was in Outlook Express.

    Create a separate Vista user login account for each user.
    Set up Windows Mail for each user to only access their email account.

  3. This assumes that they are not aliases for the same mailbox on the server:

    Four possibilities:

    1. Use different Windows Users

    2. Make new folders and make a message rule like this:

    Apply this rule after the message arrives
    Where the message is from the mail.fjsmjs.com account
    Move it to the fjsmjs folder
    and Stop processing more rules

    3. Use Windows Live Mail which has separate folders for each account:

    4. Buy WMIDs http://www.oehelp.com/WMIDs/Default.aspx

    Microsoft expects you to have user accounts under Vista for each user, and
    to
    use this to separate the Windows Mail accounts. This can cause problems if
    your accounts on the mail servers are a master account and a few aliases for
    it, as some email providers tend to do. In such a case, the first user to
    start
    Windows Mail after the mail reaches the server will get it, no matter which
    user it was sent to. If, instead, each user has a fully separate account on
    the
    server, and each user has only that email account entered, they'll get only
    their
    own email. This doesn't protect the users from looking at each other's
    stored
    email files, though.
