Windows 7: Live Mail Accounts - how to integrate?

Live Mail Accounts - how to integrate?

I have two Windows Live Mail Accounts hence I have both shown separately on left hand folder pane with Inbox, draft, sent, junk and deleted below each.
How do I arrange to keep both accounts but integrate them and so have only one inbox, drafts, sent items etc showing in folder pane.
Thanks

Hello PJ, welcome to the Seven Forums.

It's only possible if the accounts are POP accounts. IMAP accounts, like Hotmail etc. always create their own folders.

EDIT, 3 days later: Above mentioned is wrong. There's no know way to fix OP's issue, WLM creates separate folders for every account, POP or IMAP.

Welcome


The best way is to close the tree in the left pane (do not have all the accounts showing) At the top you see unread, if only that shows, it will be just like having one account.

I have no POP accounts in my WLM. I'm going home in couple of hours, setup a couple of POP accounts and test it. I'll be back with the results.

Just click on the little arrow pointers to the left of what you want to close.

Close tree

Richard,

When I close the "Quick View" tree I still have the 6 e-mail accounts listed below. Is there some way I can get these in the "Quick View" and have a single delete folder?

PJ, it looks like I owe you an apology. I assumed too much, thinking that WLM works like old Outlook Express and Windows Mail did.

I created some dummy emails to a domain of mine, setup these accounts in WLM as POP accounts and found absolutely no way to create global folders. Instead, every account creates own folders.

I'm really sorry I mislead you ; I just couldn't think that Microsoft takes a step back and removes something useful. If it was possible, I would neg rep me (a hint, mods!).
