Need assistance adding a shortcut in Outlook 2000

I'm running Outlook 2000 (Win 98SE) and I just setup a secondary email account for a side business of mine.

I know there's a way to setup a shortcut on the Outlook Shortcuts bar that will show me that new account, and if it has mail. I have this set up at my day job, and it works fine - but someone else did it for me and I can't figure out how to do it.

Yes, I know I can wait until Monday, but I'd like to get it done today...

thx

How is your Outlook setup?
As Internet Mail (i.e. at home, with an ISP), or as a Corporate setting (i.e. in a network)?

Just create two new folders under inbox and then create a rule for both eMail addresses that will take anything sent to each eMail address to be moved automatically to the newly created folders. Then whenever anything new arrives it will go to the appropriate folder depending on what address it was sent to.

It's setup as a standard at home account, as opposed to a network.

Alright, makes sense - except how to set the rule for the new folder.

You setup the rules for the inbox that whatever is sent to eMail account one will be moved to folder #1, rule two would also be for the inbox to move any eMails sent to eMail account two to be moved to folder #2.
