Windows Live Mail - How to send using Alias? (Urgent Help Needed)

Greetings,

I work at home and my main means of communication with my employer is via Email. Due to some emails requiring to be downloaded and saved for future reference, I had to start using a manager. I started using WLM and am very satisfied with all its features. However, I've been sending and replying to my employer using my main email or the parent email in this case. How do I reply/send email using my alias?

I've already tried that last night. Unfortunately, it didn't work as I thought it would. I lost my alias folder and it only pulled in emails from my main email/parent email.

Hi Cash, am I right in saying you want all your mail from / to your employer to be saved in the same folder for future reference.

I personally use 3 mail accounts. One for friends, one for general use and the last as adhoc. Your best modus operandi would be another account. Gmail is my first choice as, if mail is accessed using POP it can be archived by Gmail, & it keeps a record of sent / forwarded mail and wont be deleted if removed from WLM.
This will explain it better. WLM Tips.docx

I'd do that if I can separate my alias from my main email and turn it into a new one. If I delete the alias, can I register it as a new email?
