    I used to use windows live mail and on the side I could see my own email box
    but under it I could see my husbands and under the the busness email and when
    mail came in they went into the seperate in boxes so my mail was seperate
    form my husbands and from the business is there a way of doing this with
    windows mail

    The best work around is to create another named folder for each of the other
    accounts, and use message rules to direct the incoming mail to them.
    Tools menu>message rules.

    You can add multiple accounts, via Tools - Accounts - Add, but Windows Mail
    doesn't have identities or a password option....

    Windows Mail puts email from all accounts into the same Inbox, and there's
    no setting to change that. When you send a message, you can select which
    account to send from, by clicking on the From: box.

    Here are a few alternatives to keep your email separate...

    1. Create folders for each email account and create message rules to move
    email addressed to each account into the appropriate folder.

    2. Create and use different Windows Users, each with WM accessing only
    their email account. (This is how you set a password to keep other users

    3. Use the newer Windows Live Mail which has separate folders for each
    account, but no identities or password:

    4. Purchase WMIDs which adds identities to WM

    5. Use Windows Mail for one account, Windows Live Mail for another.

  4. How come you are no longer using Windows Live Mail?
