Windows 7: hotmail account and Outlook 2010

hotmail account and Outlook 2010

When I install my hotmail account into my Outlook 2010 I cannot have that account in my regular pst.

How can I solve that so that I have all my accounts just in one pst?
God bless

I don't think you can because hotmail is web based and outlook is pop3, so they have to be seperate

thanks for your answer.

But isn't it bizarre? Is it not possible to pop3 a hotmail account?

both are from Microsoft and they repeat they want to make our lives simpler and interconnected....

A question; I am not challenging you. How do yo know your PST file does not contain the Hotmails? On my machine, I have the following:

outlook.pst
archive.pst
~outlook.pst.tmp

Unless my outlook.pst contains the Hotmail emails, where are they stored?

I am certain because after I install my hotmail account in my MS Outlook 2010 I have two different folders: one for all my accounts (gmail, personal from other domains) and the other one for my hotmail.
So I know that for sure

I have the same. I think that is because Outlook syncs with Hotmail. My folders on Hotmail and my Hotmail folders in Outlook are identical and contain the same emails, When I delete a Hotmail email from Outlook, it deletes on Hotmail itself also.

He want his hotmail to be incorperated with his outlook mail, like all in one inbox, and that can't be done because they are two different types of mail as i said in my first post.

I have the same thing OliverPe, my hotmail account i've had probably 15 years, back when there was an aboundance of free carreirs and dialup, and thats why you could carry your email address with you, your mail stayed on the server as web based mail.

I don't know anyway to do what you want because of the synchronization between Outlook and Hotmail. I am just happy that that MS finally enabled pop3 access to Hotmail.
