I'm migrating from XP and Outlook Express 6. Not sure yet if I'm going to use Windows Live Mail, but I'm trying it out.
In OE I set up multiple email accounts (five) and messages all come into one Inbox, plus I have about 50 or so folders created and message rules that toss messages into the appropriate folder. Doesn't matter to me what account was used, although I do display the To: address and the account so that I can easily see them when needed.
In Live Mail it appears the accounts are kept separate, each with its own Inbox. And I can't create folders at the top level. If I want a folder for "Forum Replies" I can only create one within one of the accounts.
Am I missing something, or must folders be organized like this in Live Mail. Is there any way to consolidate everything?
