Data File Management

Outlook version
Email Account

I have moved my pst file into my drop box account so that I can use it on various devices, i.e I my laptop and home pc. I have also now done this for my works email account and configured my works laptop and pc to use the same pst file in my dropbox account.

Now what I want to do is configure outlook to operate 2 pst files independently of each other, but at the same time. I have used the Data File Management option to add the additional pst file to both and configured both email accounts on both home and work machines. What is not working, is that when an email from my personal address comes through to the machine with my works email as default, the email is saved in my works pst file and in the inbox for my work account.

Does anyone know how I can link the email accounts independently to each pst file so that the right emails go into the right inboxes??
