Windows 7: How to set Outlook to deliver IMAP email to Outlook.PST

How to set Outlook to deliver IMAP email to Outlook.PST

Hello everyone,

I hope this is the correct forum. I did not know if I should post here, or in the Microsoft Office forum, since this is also an Outlook issue. Please tell me if I should post there instead.

The problem is that Outlook wants to deliver IMAP email to a separate PST, not the Outlook.PST, and puts it in a separate "folder".

I first encountered this problem when I set up Outlook 2010, because the automatic configuration of my email accounts set the server to IMAP instead of POP, which is what I previously had used. This would not have been a problem, except that Outlook also created separate PST files and Outlook "folders" for each account. With POP, I had always had all of my email in the same In Box and Outlook.PST, which is what I prefer.

Now, to the present problem. I now have an iPhone, and supposedly IMAP is a better way to manage email between 2 devices (my notebook PC and the iPhone). So, the problem is twofold:
  • How do I set up a MobileMe IMAP account in Outlook to deliver email to the Outlook.PST file, and in the main In Box?
  • How can I change my present Gmail POP accounts to IMAP and have them also delivered to the Outlook.PST file, and the main In Box?
Your assistance is greatly appreciated and recognized with appropriate "rep". Thank you for your consideration of my issue.
