1 Inbox

Hi,

I have 4 email accounts.
- GMail, this is a POP3 account - mail is delivered to my main inbox
- My business Email, this is a microsoft exchange server - mail is
delivered to my main inbox
- AOL, this is an IAMP account - mail is delivered to it's own inbox
- Hotmail (I have Hotmail plus) - this is delivered via Outlook Connector -
mail is delivered to it's own inbox

So I have 3 inboxes. 2 of which do not have options like flag for follow up
and whatnot. I can manually move all messages into my main inbox, but this is
beoming tedious.
If I can manually move them about, is there a way to specify that ALL
incoming mail is rerouted to my main inbox?

I use Outlook 2007.

Thanks in advance

All POP3 and Exchange accounts are gathered under one message store.
That is, all POP3 and Exchange accounts show up in one Inbox (for that
message store).

Each IMAP accounts gets its own message store hence each will have its
own Inbox for that unique message store.

Each HTTP account (like Hotmail) gets its own message store hence each
will have its own Inbox for that unique message store.

.....you just retyped my problem.

The IAMP and HTTP folders don't have all features so I can't sety up a rule
to forward them, but there must be a way if it's possible manually.

Rules only work with SMTP and POP3 mails, not IMAP or HTTP.

You asked how to get all mails into one Inbox. You said what happens
with your current account setup. I'm supposed to know that you know
this is how Outlook is supposed to behave?
The IAMP and HTTP folders don't have all features so I can't sety up a
rule
to forward them, but there must be a way if it's possible manually.

Rules don't work for HTTP accounts, so you can't use them to move them
around. In fact, as I recall, when you go into the Rules Wizard and
have an HTTP account, it warns you (maybe only the first time) that they
won't work for HTTP accounts. I wasn't sure if rules work with IMAP
accounts but, according to Milly, they don't.

Whatever you can manually do can be done using software but it might be
a clunky solution. Go ask in the outlookcode.com site to see what help
you can get writing up some VBA to use within Outlook to alter its
behavior. I suppose you could even use a keyboard macro program or
something ridiculously oversized for the solution, like WinRunner, to
automate a bunch of keypresses and mouse clicks. Yeah, it's possible
but it may not be desirable (timewise, moneywise, effortwise).

Seems an easier solution is, if available, to have the mail server
forward all received mails to one mail account. That is, have all mails
received at your IMAP account forwarded to your Exchange e-mail address.
I don't know what, if much, mail handling options that AOL provides. I
remember seeing some services that advertise bringing multiple e-mail
accounts of various types (POP3, IMAP, HTTP) into one mailbox.
Basically they act as a client to poll all the configured e-mail
accounts just like you do but do it automatically and you yank your
e-mails from their service.
