How to download all email to one box in outlook express

I am running Outlook Express 2000. I have several email addresses and would like to log on to only one box and download all email from my sever to the primary email address. How do I do this?

Scadmom,

I don't fully understand my question. You seem to have a way to express yourself rather inaccurately. However, I have several email-addresses myself, so I can tell you how I have done it.

Each e-mail-address is represented in OE by an 'account'. This, in essence, tells OE what mailserver to use (pop3.myisp.com, smtp.myisp.com, or even hotmail) and what username and password to use to logon. And an account has an option which tells OE if you want have a look at the server automatically if you start OE or press 'receive all', or want to receive only 'by hand'.

Then all messages received (from any of these accounts) are put into the Inbox at your hard disc (belonging to your identity). You would need 'rules' to put them in other folders (such as subfolders of the Inbox).

Hope this helps.
