    I understand that Windows Mail combines all identities. I have also set up a
    rule to put recieved emails from my two different emails accounts into
    seperate inboxes. Is there a way to put sent and deleted emails into serate
    folders automaticly? (from each email account)

    NO, but you may be able to create rules that can be applied MANUALLY to do it.

    I just wish I knew how to do that. The rules that are listed do no seem to
    cover that.

    Hi, how did you set up a rule to put received emails into separate boxes? his
    is all so confusing to me. Also does anyone know if they've solved the
    problem with sending Word documents as attachments, from Windows mail?

    Hi, Math1a.

    In WLM, click Tools | Message Rules | Mail, then New. In the top window,
    "Select one or more conditions", scroll down about 4 lines to "Where the
    message is from the specified account". Check this box. Then, in the next
    window, "Select one or more actions", check the box for "Move it to the
    specified folder". Then, in this same window, don't forget to scroll down
    to "Stop processing more rules" and check that box, too.

    Then go to the third window and specify the account and folder. You will,
    of course, have to create the account and folder if they do not already
    exist. Finally (optional, but recommended), give your new rule a name.

    If that doesn't work, please post back with details.

    Thanks RC, but I have already set up my email account "one" to go to one
    inbox and my email account "two" to go to another inbox. (using the rules)

    What i would like to do is set it up so sent and deleted emails from account
    "one" and "two" go to seperate sent/deleted folders.

    I'm just trying to keep my two email address as seprerate as possible. So
    when i'm looking for something they are not all together.

    Any Ideas?

    Hi, thank you for your help. I did exactly what you said, but now when I sent
    a test message to my second Identity, in this case, my second email acount,
    it doesn't go through to that sub folder. I think I need to select the rule
    where any message being sent to this other email address should go through to
    my New Folder, but there's no option for that rule.
    This is so complicated! :)

    you create the rule as you normally would.
    selecting the condition (email) and MOVE TO and select the folder to move to.
    do not check the rule box for enabling all the time./
    then when you are ready to manually apply.
    select the Tools Rules Mail and click he APPLY button.
    select the rule you wish to apply and then use the BROWSE button to select the folder to apply the rule to (original SENT items folder, for instance).

    you can select more than one rule at a time to be processed. so having created one for each email address you can select them both and use the APPLY one time selecting both rules.









    I just wish I knew how to do that. The rules that are listed do no seem to
    cover that.

    Thanks for the help but I don't understand what you saying.

    Let's say I'm sending an email from "account " I would like it
    to show up in "account 1 sent items" folder

    as well

    when i send an email from "account " I would like it to show up
    in "account 2 sent items" folder

    Same goes for when I delete a message from "account 1" I want it to go to
    "account 1 deleted items" folder.

    as well

    when I delete a message from "account 2" I want it to go to "account 2
    deleted items" folder.

    you have to create a rule for

    create a local folder called #1 sent items and #2 sent items

    1st rule
    FROM
    move to #1 sent items folder
    stop processing

    2nd rule
    FROM
    move to #2 sent items folder.
    stop processing

    do not check the box in front of the rules

    when you are ready to manually apply the rules you open the rules select MAIL
    click on the APPLY button.
    select the #1 and #2 rules.
    click on the BROWSE button and select the SENT ITEMS folder.
    click APPLY.

    you can do the same for the other folders you want to separate the mail from. was sit deleted items.

  12. I replied to your other thread on this.
    Windows Live Mail will do what you want automatically without
    any rules.

  13. In essence you need two rules similar to this:

    1. Where the message is from the 'Account_A' account
    move it to the Inbox_A folder
    and stop processing more rules.

    2. Where the message is from the 'Account_B' account
    move it to the Inbox_B folder
    and stop processing more rules.

  14. Where From contains <your address for "one">
    Move to <the folder you want it in>

    Uncheck the rule and then use Apply To to apply it manually to Sent Items.
