Consolidating email accounts outlook
The accounts still share the Contacts, Calendar, Journal, Notes and Tasks folder of your main folder set.
You can of course create additional ones if you want. The changes are instant although you still need to move your already received emails.
POP3 accounts can use a local data file or you can configure POP3 to deliver to the same folder as a Exchange, Hotmail, or IMAP account.
However, if you do, all messages will be uploaded to that mailbox on the server.
You can’t change the delivery location for Hotmail Connector or IMAP accounts.
See Using Navigation Pane-Groups if you need instructions for creating groups in the Navigation pane.
This is particularly handy when you want to have a unified Inbox folder or use Search Folders all across you mailbox.
