What type of email accounts do you want to manage in Outlook 2007?

If one or both the email accounts in Outlook are setup as an IMAP type then no further action is required.

If both the email accounts are configured as a POP3 type then you may use the new functionality in Outlook 2007 which allows change of the delivery location. In this case, you neither have to create a new Outlook profile nor have to create rules to deliver emails for the accounts to a separate store location.

Try the steps given below:

Open Outlook 2007, click on Tools > Account Settings > Email

Select the POP3 account from the list then click on "Change Folder" (bottom-left)

Select or create a folder to associate it with the current email account

I just have to say THANKS a million times for making it so clear how to set the mail to go into two different folders for two accounts. I had to reinstall Windows on my computer and reinstall all my programs. I couldn't remember how I configured Outlook before. Comcast does not support Outlook so they would/could not help me. I have searched the Internet to solve this little problem but could not find the answer until I found this forum. THANK YOU again!!


Now that I have the emails going into the right folder, can you please tell me how to set it up so all my sent items from ie: Inbox 2 can automatically go to a seprate folder also? Thank you!
