How do I set up a second email account's specified Inbox and sig? [message #252422] Wed, 12 December 2007 13:57 Go to next message

I've set up one email account that interfaces with Outlook and successfully
assigned it its own inbox as well as outgoing signature. I have a second
email account I set up, which I did get to log in so that emails are
delivered to outlook, but I can't seem to find the way to set up an assigned
inbox as with the first (i.e., emails that come to that email address only go
into that particular folder; instead it's sending them to my larger "Inbox");
and, when I try to set up a second signature, I notice there are three
signature titles listed even though I only created one. When I delete one, I
can no longer select the other two in the list to delete those, even though
they stay on the list in the signature dialogue box; and neither displays a
signature associated with that signature title. When I try to copy in a
signature to associate with one of the two remainign signature titles, an
additional title gets added to the list. (now there are three again). I'm
confused. Any help?

Outlook contains a single Inbox and Outbox
Generally you create subfolders then use rules to move msgs to the
appropriate folders
It also depends on the version of Outlook being used

State your Outlook version.

This is the way all Outlooks up until Outlook 2007 work. All POP accounts
and a combination of Exchange and POP accounts will all share the same
default folders. Rules can be created to sort incoming mail into separate
folders based on receiving account (or a number of other criteria). Outlook
2007 is more flexible and you can designate a per-account delivery folder
without using rules.

When you create a signature, you ususally get three files, one for each type
of message format, HTML, Plain Text , and Rich Text, so that your signature
can be used with each format.

You need Outlook 2003 or 2007 in irder to have per-account signatures and
you must use Word as your mail editor in Outlook 2003 if you want Outlook to
choose the account-specific signature automatically. See if this helps:
