    I'm new to Windows Mail (used outlook express prior) and trying to figure it
    out... I have 2 email accounts, both set up as seperate accounts, but they
    get comingled in one Inbox... How can I have 2 Inboxes? I don't want to set
    up a rule but is that how I have to do it?

    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.
