How do I separate and organize email addresses into folders?

You can organize and separate two or more email addresses by creating a separate folder for each email address and creating message rules that saves incoming emails for each email account into its own folder.

Here is how to accomplish this using Outlook Express:

  1. Right click on In Box and Left click on New Folder
  2. On the Create Folder pop-up, on the Folder Name, type your email address and click OK. A folder with your email will appear under the In Box. Repeat this step for each one of your email addresses.
  3. From the Menu, click on Tools, go down to Message Rules, and click on Mail.
  4. On the New Mail Rule pop-up, on the first section, check the box that says "Where the To or CC line contains people."
  5. On the third section, click on "contains people" link.
  6. On the Select People pop-up, type in the proper email address (example: joe@comentum.com) and click on Add, then OK.
  7. On the second section, check the box that says, "Copy it to the specified folder."
  8. On the third section again, click on the "specified" link.
  9. On the pop-up, click on the folder which corresponds to the proper email address. Click OK and OK.
  10. On the Message Rule pop-up, click on New button and repeat step 4 for all of your email accounts.
