Email - Add Message Rules

You have purchased a domain and wish to use email with that domain.  You have added the account to Outlook Express as per Add Domain email instructions  provided earlier.  Now you wish to route the email to specific folders within Outlook Express.
You will need to figure out how you wish to organize the accounts.  A suggestion is to create a folder under Local Folders, name that folder according to the account, setup subfolders that will hold the incoming email per topic.
