I hope someone can help me or tell me this can not be done. I have 2 pop email accounts. My main one and a secondary account. I want to have all the messages that come into the secondary account to go in a folder labeled Misc. Can that be done? If that can be done can I have a sound for incoming message for the main account, but not the secondary one?

thanks in advance

What version of Outlook?

Yes, it can be done - you can use rules or if using Outlook 2007/2010, set the delivery folder in Account Settings.

To handle the sound, turn it off in outlook and configure a rule to play a sound for all mail from the main account.

Thank you so much for responding. I am using 2010. Could you please give me a little more detail as I have never used rules before. I really appreciate it.

I tried what you said on a computer with 2007 Outlook and the emails still come to the inbox. Is there an apply button I am missing? Thanks
