Create new folders for new account?

Hi,

Outlook 2007. I have two accounts set up (both for Hotmail, using the
Connector). This works fine, and in the Mail Items pane on the left-hand
side I've got two sets of folders (Inbox etc.) visible, one for each Hotmail
address.

I'd now like a third account, using my ISP's mail server. I can create the
account easily enough, but what I *don't* get when I do so is a new Inbox
etc. for that account. The settings for the new account state that mail
will be delivered to one of the existing mailboxes. I can change it to the
other one easily enough (which I don't want to do), but what I can't figure
out is how to get a complete new set of folders (Inbox, Sent Mail etc.) for
the new account.

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here. Any help much appreciated.

I figured it out, I needed to create a new data file. Thanks for looking.
