    Hi folks,

    I have an AOL account and I've always had mails sent to the webmaster, admin, feedback email addresses of my sites forwarded on to my AOL account.

    I've decided now that I want to use Outlook Express 5 to store them.

    My question is, how do I setup OE5 so that I can have seperate folders for each address at several domains (eg admin@webdevforums.com, webmaster@webdevforums.com, forums@webdevforums.com etc) and how to I set it up to be able to send from each address also.

    I hope I made my question clear enough

    Not sure if this will work, but try going to Tools >> Accounts, and then setting up your different e-mail addresses. Then, you can filter the different e-mail from each account into seperate folders.

    1) Set up the email addresses.

    2) Create the folders.

    3) Create a filter to move mail from a specific address to a specific folders. Do this for each address/folder.

    Finally, you can change which address you want to send a specific email from by using the "Send" button drop-down menu and selecting the account.

    Outlook is much more sophisticated, could you not use that instead?

    I use the Message Rules features of OE5 and they're very useful. It could seperate messages for my 10 accounts.
