I have a freeserve e:mail address and so does my brother, and our addresses both end in @holics.fsnet.co.uk , i am wondering if it is possible for me to only recieve mail addressed to me at [email protected] and not my brother at [email protected], he can collect his mail on his laptop....any ideas?

I am a little confuesed here

Do you mean that you want to collect the e-mails from the same computer?

If thats what you want to do, then you can set up another identity and have the 2 running independently

to do that in OE select file and then identities and then add identity

You'll have to set up some RULES for you to do this. Otherwsie it will download all emails...

In OE go to Tools > Message Rules > Mail...

Heres one way to do it...

Put a tick in the box "Where the TO line contains people", then below put a tick in the box "Do not downlaod from server", then below that enter your brothers email address (click the blue)

So any email that is to your brother, it will not downlaod.
