I recently changed my email from pop to imap. For some reason after i deleted the original pop email and set up a new imap email it started a new email acct. I need to merge and just use one. Not seeing where to do this anywhere. I also deleted my icloud acct since i didn't need it. not sure if that matters. Thanks

To import your Old PST file created through POP3 email account in the new IMAP PST account just follow this path: File>>Open, Import>>Import from another program or file>>Select file type>>Browse>>Next>>Finish

This won't allow me since the file is already in use. I could probably fix with someone on phone fairly quick? Otherwise i may need to delete the imap folder and leave as is?

if the pst is in use, its in your profile. You can either drag the items to the imap pst or close the pst (right click on the top level folder where it has the pst name) and choose Close. Then import. It can take a few minutes for outlook to release the hold, but if you close and restart outlook it will drop it.

If you decide to drag the items i would right click and drag to make a copy. The local pst can be your backup.

I have over 3000 contacts and 25 folders under old profile. Isn't there a way to merge? It shows two data files see below. thx for help!

Oh, now i see. When you have imap accounts in outlook 2010 and older, you need a separate pst for the calendar and contacts, so no, there is no way to merge them. Sorry, when you mentioned imap earlier, I didn't think about it being the calendar and contacts pst.

Outlook 2013 removes that restriction, but it's risky because if anything happens to the account, you may lose your appointments and contacts.
