    I have a Yahoo account that I can access via OE6 and a POP3 server.
    Unfortunately, all incoming mail is merged in with my existing ISP email
    account. Is there a way to setup OE so that all this mail goes to a separate
    inbox, without the need to create a second OE identity?

    You don't need a second inbox.

    Create a new folder, then create a message rule based on the incoming mail
    account to be transferred to that folder ..

    "Managing e-mail messages with rules
    When you have large volumes of incoming e-mail, Outlook Express can help you
    process it more efficiently. You can use rules in Outlook Express to
    automatically sort incoming messages into different folders, highlight
    certain messages in color, automatically reply to or forward certain
    messages, and do much more.

    The following topics provide more information:

    Create a rule for e-mail messages

    Change a rule

    Apply a rule to downloaded messages "

    Create a rule so that mail sent to goes to a
    seperate inbox perhaps called Yahoo.

    Please remove obvious from email address if emailing.

  6. Create a new folder e.g. "yahoo-inbox" and then set up a mail rule "if
    mail is from account yahoo, then move to yahoo-inbox".

    best regards

    yes easy. Go to Tools > message rules > mail. Click new and make it understand
    that all mails to '' shall go the designated folder. That's it :)
