Pretty much, yes. If you use Outlook or Outlook Express you configure each mail account separately, then create filters to move incoming mail from the inbox to specified folders. Thunderbird will create separate inboxes for each account.

If you choose one system to be the "master," then you can configure all your others to leave copies of mail you don't delete on the host server and they'll remain there until the "master" downloads them. Or you can use a file synch utility to compare the mailbox files on different systems and and update as needed.

If you set up your own domain you can create email addresses that are not dependent on your internet provider and don't change when you switch from one to another.

What is your strategy for quickly jumping from one account

it all blur?

Can most mail readers be configured to poll multiple providers
from multiple profiles/identities and download the incoming
to separate inboxes that are also seprate file/directory
structures?
