    Each user has a seperate account with IP. When email is selected all emails
    go into oine box. How do I get then seperated for each user?

    Hi Mr. Lost

    The best thing to do is to have each user on their own user account i
    Vista. That way you can set Windows Mail up for each user account. Thi
    tutorial will show you how to create a new user account

    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/93009-user-account-create.htm

    If you prefer to keep using the same user account, then you can creat
    a new mailbox folder and create a "Message Rule" to redirect one of th
    email account's email to it

    You can also use Windows Live Mail instead. It supports Pop3, IMAP
    HTTP website (EX: Hotmail) email, and is a lot more stable. Plus, WL
    will minimize to a tray bar icon and has a separate Inbox for eac
    account. WLM will automatically import Windows Mail messages, accounts
    and settings into it. _Contacts_ will have to be manually imported fro
    within WLM. (Tools, Contacts, File, Import, Address book for curren
    Windows User.) To see the _Menu_bar_, press ALT+M and check "Show al
    menus"

    For 32 bit and 64 bit Vista:

  3. There's a couple of ways to do this.
    About the best you can do with just Windows Mail is to use
    message rules to separate incoming email so that different
    accounts go into different inbox folders.

    Another option (not free) can be obtained here:
    http://www.oehelp.com/WMIDs/

    A third option is to upgrade to Windows Live Mail (WLM).
    Although WLM doesn't have the full-blown Identities feature
    that OE had, nevertheless it has some of that functionality.
    Separate folders for each account help to keep mail separated
    without having to use any message rules.

  4. The way you should do it, according to Microsoft, is by using different
    Windows User accounts.

    Or for $15 see this: WMIDs http://www.oehelp.com/WMIDs/Default.aspx

    Or set up the accounts, make new folders and use Message Rules to move the
    mail:

    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
