Outllook 2007

Hi

I have installed Office 2007 with Outlook and am starting to use it as my
email account. I also have Outlook Connector so that my Hotmail is linked
(?) to my Outlook.

Suffice it to say that the set up of Outlook is confusing and I need help.

1. For some reason I find that I have 2 email accounts: Options -- Mail
Settings - Email accounts: Pop3 and MAPI.
Do I need both? which one is not needed? Both have the same HotMail
address??

2. The left side of my Outlook page, under Mail has a number of items --
see below -- am I set up incorectly? Why do I have 2 inboxes outboxes, etc.

a. Favorite Folders (Inbox, Deleted, Outbox, Sent, Unread Mail
(with a list of MS at work items)
b. Mail Folders
Mail items
-Personal Folders
+ Infected
Alarm
Deleted
Drafts
+Inbox
Junk
Outbox
+Personal Subfolders (these came from my OE)
RSS feeds
Sent
Search
c. my email address -- (e-mail address removed) -- this is where my real
mail is and comes.

1. if you only have one account you only need one. POP3 is inbox only, the
connector includes all folders and calendar/contacts.

2. a is a list of shortcuts, b looks like the original folder list with your
imported items, c is the connector folder.

Hi
Thanks for the inputs.
If I understand you, I should delete the POP 3 account in Outlook, and keep
the MAPI account which will keep mail synchronized with Hotmail, just like
OE used to do.

I have also set up my wife's PC with Outlook 2007 and Connector, but her
Inbox mail appears in Personal Folders -- a. below, while on my PC the Inbox
mail is only in account c. Also Junk mail appears on her PC in both a.
and c.

How do I fix this mess?

Thanks

both a. and c.

In the second PC the contact list differs -- the first column of names is by
First Name/Last Name
the 3rd column, again names, is by Last Name/First Name. I tried to fix
this, but it only changes the 3rd column.
How do I fix this mess?

Thanks
