Folder Configuration with imap vs. Pop


D

DDean

Using Vista and MS Outlook 2007, I've been using 5 different Pop3 email
accounts going into one set of folders (the defualt folders plus a few that
I've added). In order to better communicate with my BlackBerry I've changed
the 5 email accounts from pop to imap. So I removed the pop email accounts in
Outlook and added them back as imap accounts. The problem is that instead of
using the existing folders (which is what I want to do), it created a whole
new set of default folders for "each" email account. Is there a way I can
keep each of the 5 email accounts as imap (but not veiw them), but still use
just the one set of existing folders I have from the original pop email
accounts?

Thanks, I was afraid of that.

No. IMAP is a server-store acct and each acct will have its own folder set
which is an exact replica of the folders on the server.
