If you went through the steps using the Internet Connection Wizard to setup your connection to Citynet, you should have your primary email account setup. The primary account is also referred to as the default email account because it's the first account entered and checked before the others. To setup email accounts, click the link above and follow the steps to add additional email accounts to the computer. (NOTE: This walk - through will only work with Outlook Express 5 or Outlook 2000.)
To Add Additional Email Accounts
Outlook Express and Outlook 2000 both support multiple identities with each individual email account in it's own section. This allows multiple people who use the same computer to setup their accounts and secure them from other viewers. Identities provide password protection to prevent someone from logging onto your Identity and viewing your mail. To set up your Identities, please click the link above and follow the steps provided.
To Create Identities and Setup Mail Rules in Outlook Express
Mail rules are a way that you can customize the operation of Outlook and how your mail is handled. Using mail rules, you can set up Outlook to take multiple accounts under the same identity and place the incoming mail into individualized folders so that it is sorted as it comes in. When Outlook does this, you will have the mail from one account go into a folder specifically for it while the rest of the mail goes to the inbox. You can also set it up so that four different accounts go into four different folders. Click the link above and follow the steps to setup multiple folder mail rules.
