2010 - Setting up POP after Exchange


R

Robert Serna

Just installed OfficeProPlus2010 on a new PC.

The first email account I setup was an Exchange account - No problem(cached
mode).
Now, I am trying to setup a POP account and want to deliver the messages to
the OST (like in Outlook 2007) but have not found how to do that.
Do I have to create a PST for that POP or is there an option I haven't seen?

Thank you,

Bob

Nothing to set as it should behave like pervious versions where
POP3/Exchange go to the default delivery location and IMAP accounts get
their own PST file.

With 2007, once an Exchange account was created with cached mode (using an
OST file)
then when adding a POP account you could just choose the delivery to be that
OST.
It seems now, you have to actually create the PST for the POP, then once
setup go to the account setting options and change the destination folder.

Thanks,

Nope. The default delivery for any POP account you create will be the
Exchange mailbox, whether Cached Exchange mode or not. It is never the OST.
If you work offline, the OST will substitute for the mailbox until you
reconnect. You cannot choose an OST as the delivery location.

Nope. You are confused. When adding a POP account to Outlook 2010, your only options are:

Deliver new messages to:
- New Outlook Data file (.pst)
- Existing Outlook Data file (.pst)

After creating the account, you can then modify location where new mail is delivered, nad you have the option of choosing any existing .pst or .ost (Exchange) file.
