Windows 7: Alternate email address

Alternate email address

In setting up Windows Mail there is an option to use an alternate (or additional) email address. I elected to use my long-time charter.net email address so I could get both my new and old email to the same account. The charter.net addy will route to a "charter.net" folder to keep things seperate. The operation went smooth-the port # and the incoming mail server info was accepted , no problem. I just cant seem to get any mail to my new folder. I know the emails are sent properly. Any ideas ?

Thanks for your help ....

Don't use Live Mail but I would assume it is the same as in Outlook or Thunderbird, you have to set up message rules to route the incoming mail to the correct folder.

Its really easy to set up multiple accounts. Go to WLM tools>accounts>Add and enter the server etc. Let me know if you need more help. I have 8 seperate accounts including an smtp (gmail) and (yahoo) 5 POP accounts and an Imap account. they all work
