I use a program - YahooPOPs (http://yahoopops.sourceforge.net/) - that imports Yahoo mail into Outlook Express. I was able to set a rule that makes all mail from that account to 'turn blue' for easy ID. Woks great.

I then set up my Hotmail account in OE, which went well, but then, when I tried to set up a rule to color all mail from THAT account, I couldn't...

In setting up the rule, I picked 'When a message is from the specified account', but then the only account showing as a choice was my Yahoo account, not my Hotmail.

Can't you apply rules to a Hotmail account? What need I do to get the Hotmail account as one of the choices?
