Switching From POP 3 to IMAP creates unusable .PST data files and duplicate mail folders.

Not open for further replies.


When switching from POP3 to IMAP, new PST files created by Outlook when doing set up created a single file for e-mail, and TWO files in DATA. Now I have all duplicate folders (two of each) for INBOX, Drafts, Sent Items, Spam, etc.. The second file in DATA will not allow Default setting OR removal.

Please help.
