Where are the different folders for different accounts?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by Douglas Porter, Apr 11, 2007.

  1. I can't seen to find out where the different folders for my different
    accounts are? I made two new accounts for me and my wife. And now both of
    our mail ends up in the same inbox. I don't know what I am doing wrong.
    Please help me.

    They are not separated like the Identities feature OE had..

    You will have to use a different Windows Logon account to have them
    separated or WMID from http://www.oehelp.com which will make WinMail act
    like it has the Identities feature.

    Alternatively, Windows Live Mail desktop will separate every account. Still
    in beta and still buggy though. http://ideas.live.com.

  3. Unless you use Message Rules, all incoming mail will
    go into the common Inbox. Go to Tools, Message Rules,
    Mail, New, and create 2 rules similar to this:

    1. Where the message is from the His account
    move it to the Inbox_His folder
    and stop processing more rules.

    2. Where the message is from the Her account
    move it to the Inbox_Her folder
    and stop processing more rules.

    I got so excited when I saw thispost! I have has Vista for four days --
    going NOUTS!

    I did all this for five accounts. I established four sub folders tot he
    inbox and set up the rules as you stated. NOW -- I do not get anything in
    the original INBOX, and the other four messages all show up in the filnal
    folder on the list. What am I doing wrong?

    BTW - I also established the folders as sub-folders to the LOCAL directory
    -- same problem.

    Can you provide additional guidance here? Thank you!

    Did you include 'Stop processing more rules' with each rule?

    yup -- sure did -- can NOT make heads or tails of this!

    Desperate! I was so happy with NS 7.2 mail and newsgroup and want Windows
    Mail to work just like it! Arg-g-g-h-h-h-h-h!

    Any more ideas?

  7. Could you copy your Message Rules, and post them here?
    If the rules contain an email address, the copy you post here
    should have the email address obscured somewhat for privacy.

    Are you automatically scanning incoming email for viruses?

    Thank you for your persistance with this!

    my INBOX is my default we will call



    the other four accounts and the rules I established for them are as follows
    (I cut n pasted, then renamed key ids)


    Apply this rule after the message arrives
    Where the To or CC line contains ''
    Move it to the DDDDDDD folder
    and Stop processing more rules

    Apply this rule after the message arrives
    Where the To line contains ''
    Move it to the YYYYYYY folder
    and Stop processing more rules

    Apply this rule after the message arrives
    Where the To or CC line contains ''
    Move it to the ZZZZZZZZ folder
    and Stop processing more rules

    Apply this rule after the message arrives
    Where the To or CC line contains ''
    Move it to the RRRRRRR folder
    and Stop processing more rules

    What have I missed here??

    If you have five accounts, then why aren't your rules based on the account,
    not the email address?

    Where the message is from specified account

  11. As Ron Sommer has already indicated, your rules should be based
    on the receiving account rather than on To or CC.
    The latter will not catch emails that are BCC-addressed.

    So your first rule should be something like:

    Apply this rule after the message arrives
    Where the message is from the 'ddddddd account
    Move it to the DDDDDDD folder
    and Stop processing more rules
