Keeping BES and BIS mail separate

I've got two questions, but I've posted them separately to keep the threads clean... This is the second question.


I  use BES for getting email from work (Exchange). That mail goes into the "Messages" folder.


I also have a few personal email accounts, let's say one for Yahoo. So I set up a BIS account for my Yahoo mail. Mail from that account goes into BOTH the "@yahoo" folder and the "Messages" folder.


I don't mind having all the BIS email together, but is there some way to have the BES mail kept separate? You know what they say about mixing work and pleasure... well, me either. But it's probably not good.

Yup -- that's exactly what I wanted to do. Ashame it's another $20 from a third party. But the trial seems to work OK...
