POP Mail Mail account not showing


U

Urbane Tiger

I have three mail accounts, an IMAP account, a Hotmail Free account and a
POP account. I set them up in that order, over a period 3 days..

The IMAP account is my main account, its there I can see it and I can see
its folders, mail comes in mail goes out and the folders synch.

The Hotmail account is there I can see it with its standard folders (inbox,
sent, deleted, junk), I don't keep any data on the Hotmail server, if I want
to keep stuff then I file it in an IMAP folder or a local folder, mail comes
ands goes (via the IMAP server's SMTP gate) from that account OK

When I added my POP account, the one at my ISP, there is no POP account
"header" like the IMAP and Hotmail accounts - its sort of got absorbed into
that thing called Personal Folders.

Is there someway I can make it appear as a regular account like the others,
so I can see what mail is in its inbox, what mail has been sent from it,
etc. I assume that if I had another POP account it would get amalgamated
into the Personal Folders too.

Mail flows to and from the POP account OK - I have a short retention period
on the POP account.

The default name for the store for POP3 accounts is always Personal Folders
(Outlook Today when it is the only store) Try right clicking on the
personal folders file and rename it.

am I using Outlook Connect to access hotmail? I sure am, works a treat -- is
there some other way !

Re the POP mail aggravation (sic), I'll probably leave as is for now,
creating rules only serves to add to the things that can go wrong.

I'll get used to it, there are too many other things to like about Outlook
to let that bother me too much.

Besides I'd rather write something that made Outlook a better browser:-|
