Hello,

until today I was using Outlook at home (normal pst with multiple adresses) and Outlook Exchange at work. At home, I am using Desk Task to display calendar entries and tasks on the desktop.

When I added my work exchange account to my Outlook at home, Desk Task was suddenly not showing my private calendar and tasks, but rather those of the exchange account.

It seems, Outlook set the Exchange account as the default account (Desk Task only shows the default account).

Is there a way to set my private pst as the default for appointments and tasks?

(Outlook 2010 32bit on Win7 64bit)

Thanks a lot for your help!
 
Go to File, Account Settings. On the Email tab, which account is default? I would probably set the pop account as default, just to avoid problems - Exchange can be weird with pst files as default. Go to the Data File tab and set the pst file as default.
