Is it possible to manage identidies in thunderbird?
I'm thinking of changing from outlook express to thunderbird but need to know if its possible first.
I have two emais accounts with xtra which i want to keep seperate.
Cheers.

I can't understand what they are referring to on that site when they mention Identities. As far a I can see Manage Identities and adding an address in a new identity here only gives you the option to send messages with the email address of your choice. It does not setup separate mail folders or even a new mai account.
The normal way to keep mail accounts completely separate is to setup a new profile. Start/Thunderbird/Profile Manager
