Default Migrating from Windows Live Mail 2012 to Outlook 2013

Hello,

I am currently using Windows Live Mail 2012 for my Hotmail account (as well my Comcast account and one other personal account). I recently received an automated email notice from Microsoft indicating that I will be unable to receive email sent to my Outlook.com account (I assume this means my 'Hotmail' account) in the Windows Live Mail 2012 application by the end of June once the account upgrades begin.

Since I'm using Windows 10, they recommend using the Mail app in Windows. When I tried using the mail app 6 months ago for Hotmail when I first purchased my PC, I did not like it as I could not easily manage my email, i.e. sort by 'subject', etc. Maybe there have been upgrades to mail app since that time where the interface is similar to Outlook or Windows Live Mail?



Another recommendation in the email notfication is to use Outlook. I have Outlook 2013 already on my PC which is currently only used for my company email (via Exchange). My questions are - if I use this same Outlook 2013 for my Hotmail account, Comcast account and one additional account:

- are all of the email accounts separate? I assume the answer is 'yes'?
- will any of the folders be shared? To explain, if I send a Hotmail email, will that email go to the 'Sent Items' folder along with my company emails?

I guess my main concern is keeping my personal accounts completely separate and making sure that none of my personal emails are going through the company mail server(s), etc.

Hopefully this makes sense?

Thanks in advance!
