Yeah, I saw, I just haven't had time to respond.

Depending on which version and build of Outlook you use, you'll either choose to do a manual setup before auto account setup starts or after it adds the account to your profile.

These screenshots are from the new dialog - in this one, you need to choose manual setup on the first screen then select the pst on the second. Even if you mess up, you can add the pst after the account is added in File, Options, Data Files.

Wat type of email account do you use?

Pst files are the data file used by pop3 accounts and archive. If you have an imap account, outlook.com or a business Exchange account, you won't use a pst.

If you use pop3, you should have a Change button when the account is selected. This screenshot is from Deliver All POP3 Accounts to One Outlook Inbox:

Yeah, i saw it. I was busy with clients and had to make supper. :)


Is the mail going into the other data file in your profile? This is the pst it is using:

Which looks to be the 1400000ish one here:

If you want to change the pst that it uses , click the Change Folder button and choose the inbox in the other data file.
