please help if there is a way i can set up the 2 email addresses so in have inbox for one and another inbox for the other?
Which email program?
Outlook shows a To: on the messages, other email programs are different.
Outlook Express, you could create a new folder, and mail rule for messages through this account move to this folder.
Would this be for the shaw webmail client or some other email client?
it is just for my computer email (shaw) not webmail. i know at work i have 2 emails linked to my computer but not sure how to show both on the side bar?
says windows mail...sorry not great with this kinds things as you can tell
OutLook Express and Windows Mail are not very secure. Once the security guides started telling people to disable downloading full messages and to only download the email headers, M$ removed the ability to do so with both these products. You can only force email header only with the full Outlook product now. Windows 7 doesn't even have an email client, unless you install the windows live utilities.
Any email app that defaults to automatically downloading the entire email to your computer is best avoided unless it offers options to force header only preview.
For the average user, webmail is far more secure. An unexpected email or spam can be deleted off the server before ever getting to your pc.
Wrong ->You should be able to simply open two tabs on most browsers and login to both email accounts via the shaw webmail client. Easy peasy.
Works -> If you have two different browsers installed you can have two separate email logins from the same email host at the same time. ie, ie x86 for one session and ie x64 for the second. Or whatever combo floats your boat.
The other nice thing about webmail is that if you need to do a clean install or your pc dies. There is nothing to backup or restore as it's all stored in the cloud.
The shaw webmail 2.0 service is nicely done, but using an ISP provided email can have it's complications. If you change providers you have to move your saved emails to the new account and send out a blanket mailer to everyone on your mailing list(s). Internet email hosts are free and not tied to specific ISPs.

I have the same problem - through webmail we can access our two accounts seperately but through windows mail, our incoming mail is combined and outgoing is only able to be sent from 1 address. Hope soneone can explain how to create two seperate accounts within windows Mail?
In Windows Mail, there should be a From address when you are creating a new email, for which address to Send from.
When we go to send an email , it is sent from the name of the person that is identified as the "default" person. Although we can change this each time we send an email from a different person, it is not ideal and will get missed, causing mistakes. As well, it means that all emails come into one site instead of two seperate accounts.
It does however work well on webmail.
If you mean that when an email comes into the program, you cannot tell which email address it is coming to, I think you can customize the view in the program. At the top, where it says from... subject... recieved - these are fields. I'm not sure if it's the same in windows mail as in Outlook, but try right clicking on the from field "banner". If you get a drop down tha starts as arrange by, sort acending, sort decending, etc - at the botton there would be a "customize current views" this will open up a small window and in it will be a fields button. When you select this button, anothre small window will open that will allow you to add the "TO" field. once you add this, you can move it up the line of fields until it's just above the "FROM" field. Once it's all done, the new view will show the to (which email address it came to) folloed directly by the from (the email address that sent it to you). If you open that email an hit reply, it will reply to the message from the email it was sent to.
If you want to send a new email from a specific email address, I believe there is a way to select send from and which email address but I cannot remember how at the moment. If I can remember, I'll post it for you.
Hope this helps.
