I reset 2 email accounts in Outlook after computer crash and when I hit "send/receive," ALL emails from BOTH accounts downloaded into one. How do I separate the two accounts?

Then you must have set up both accounts as POP rather than IMAP. Create a second pst file and then create a rule to move messages from one account to the new pst file.

2. Click New Rule .

3. Under Start from blank rule.

4. Select Apply Rule on messages I receive.

5. Under conditions step on this computer only and through the specified account.

6. Under step 2 click on specify account and enter the e-mail address of second e-mail account.

7. Click Next and select Move it to specified folder.
