POP3
I have 2 POP3 e-mail accounts (one Yahoo and one Outlook) and I manage my e-mail via Outlook 2016. The Yahoo has been my default account for years.

I have recently changed to Outlook address as my default and will, in time, remove the Yahoo address.

My problem is where my Tasks and Calendar and Contacts data (and any other data that I should be aware of) is stored (I believe it is in the PST file of the Yahoo account).

Is there a way to move them to the Outlook account and also to make all new entries for Tasks, Calendar and Contacts default to the Outlook account?

Thanks,
T

Outlook as in outlook.com? Drag them from the yahoo pop folders to the outlook.com folders (or use the Move to folder command on the ribbon) - in the calendar, use a list view so it's easier to select everything.

If you are using POP and have separate data files, the above will also work - move or drag tag to the other data file.
