      Two Email Accounts in Vista Windows Mail???

      Hello all.

      Just got a new PC with Vista on. Just setting up our Sky email accounts.

      We use to have Xp on the old PC, and I set up TWO email accounts, we use to goto FILE-SWITCH IDENTITIES, we could switch between each others email.

      In VISTA, I have set up TWO email accounts in WINDOWS MAIL, and BOTH email accounts download to the same INBOX. Is the anyway of setting up the accounts so only my emails goto my Inbox and my wifes goto her Inbox????

      Thanks fo any Ifo on this.

      Unlike outlook express windows mail doesn't support identities.

      That's because there is a much better way.

      What you need to do is create separate accounts in Vista and then not only will your email be separate from your wifes, but so will all your other personal settings. Things such as I.E. favorites, desktop settings, sidebar gadgets, etc.

      You can set up accounts under "Control panel, User Accounts, Add or remove user account," or "Control Panel, User Accounts, Manage Accounts, Create new account," if using classic view.

      ^^ That would be one way.

      Another way would be to use a different mail client, Thunderbird supports multiple accounts but like Windows Mail will download all the mail at the same time unless you tell it not to and check the accounts manually yourself.
