Hi Everyone,
I'm trying to figure out how exactly to get emails from certain people to go into folders I have setup that I want them to automatically go to?
I keep looking all over and not sure where to go to do this function.
Thanks,
Amy

Not sure exactly what it's called. All I know is I open the browser and go to this address- http://my.att.net/
and sign in.

Right. If you were using a third party application such as Outlook to manage email accounts you could set up rules. But if you are reading emails online via your browser I don't think there's anything you can do.

    @Allan: Gmail has "filters" that allow you do do what the OP wants. But I don't know if other webclient does it. Just to answer to

    Isn't all email read online? That is what I don't understand.
    Like same as hotmail, you open the browser type in hotmail www.hotmail.com and then sign in the account.
    Anyways, I've got folders setup that I want them to go in, but I don't know what else to do. At the moment they all keep going in my inbox, and some even keep going in the spam folder too.

    No. Online email is a comparatively recent technology (hotmail, gmail, etc).

    What do you mean about it being recent? I have had like Hotmail since the 90's. So, the Internet has been around for a long time.

    You mean the late 90's.

    I said comparatively (meaning compared to other forms of email). Pop email has been around from the beginning.

    No, early 90's I've had one of my accounts for.
    Even when I use Outlook Express though, we still have to be connected to the Internet to get the email. The address is just another way we can read the email.
