Manage E-mails From Different Accounts In Microsoft Office Outlook 2003

I have been checking and organizing my e-mails using Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 since I started blogging. A few days ago, I purchased a new domain name. Now, I have to setup Microsoft Outlook to manage both my e-mail accounts. This is when I noticed a problem (or inconvenience). All e-mails that I received from both accounts go into the same Inbox. The program did not create different set of folders for each account.

So, I googled for it and found this post, How do I receive email on different accounts into different folders in Outlook?. It was exactly what I needed. There are step-by-step guides with screenshots. Overall, that is a very good guide. After following all the steps, I was able to forward all e-mails received and sent from the second account to 2 newly created folders below.

2 newly created folders

It was simple to redirect the e-mails following the guide provided in the post. However, it would have been great if Microsoft Outlook was able to handle multiple accounts in a more efficient way. I’m thinking of changing to Mozilla’s Thunderbird 2.

Should I? What e-mail program are you using?

    Thanks a lot for the information. I have to admit I didn’t know about it. However, I was thinking of organizing my e-mails using an “offline” program. But I agree there is pros and cons to it.

    Is it possible to download all e-mails from GMail into my local drive? I’ll need to think real hard for this one. Thanks again for the information.

    I’m speechless. Thanks for your help. It does look like using GMail is a good bargain after all. Unfortunately, Google limits us to 5 POP accounts only. I’ll do some comparison and see which I prefer. Thanks again for your help.
