Hello Diana,

I am using IMAP for my email server under the, so called, Mail Exchange (equivalent to MS Exchange I guess) provided by 1and. The IMAP setup points to 2014.pst file, but not his, another pst file, 2013.pst is the default pst file! I do not know how this is so, but I could not change this and make the 2014.pst as my default pst file, since when I choose 2014.pst to set it up as default, the "Set as default" option is greyed out. So, what happens is that, the drafts I create are saved under the 2013.pst not under teh 2014.pst. I am not sure about where my calendar entries, tasks, contacts are saved under, but at least I can have them on the Outlook window. But, in order to see my drafts, I have to open the Drafts folder in the 2013.pst, since they are not in the 2014.pst datafile. So my question is how I can make the drafts and everything else for that matter to go to the pst file, 2104.pst where my emails go? Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Cem

When you use IMAP, you will have two pst files - one for the imap account to sync with the server and one for calendar, contacts, outbox and drafts. This data file needs ot be set as default - you can't set the imap data file as default.
