Windows 7: Still No Unified Inbox in Outlook 2010!

Still No Unified Inbox in Outlook 2010!

Unless I'm missing a trick, there is still no unified Inbox in Outlook 2010. In this day and age of most people having multiple email accounts, I find that amazing.
MS have managed to do it excellently in the Mac version of Office 2011 Outlook, so why are we losing out?

Yes, thanks for that. I've seen that before. I didn't try it because it seems to just move mails to another folder which isn't really the same thing.
You only have to look at Apple's mail client on the iPhone or OS X, or Microsoft's own Outlook 2011 for Mac to see how it should be done.
I just don't understand why MS haven't built it into the Windows version of Office yet.

I don't understand, all of my email goes to my singular inbox from the five email accounts I use.

Always has since Outlook for XP. I suppose I'm missing something, I'm sure, regarding the OP's post. On my iPhone, on the other hand, I have to go into each account to read my emails.

Tell me how you do it - please!
As far as the iPhone is concerned, then I guess you're not on iOS4, otherwise you would have a unified Inbox.
What I see is this screenshot below

I give up.
I tried the new rule method mentioned above. Couldn't get it to work.
The best I seem to be able to achieve is to show all 4 Inboxes in Favorites. At least then, I don't have to expand each account tree to see the Inboxes.
I would still like to know how Mikedl got it to work, though.

Are all your email accounts POP3?

I didn't do anything special. I've kept my settings for Outlook since Office XP (yeah, I've got email that old I still lug around from version to version). All of my mail goes to my singular inbox except for my Gmail IMAP account which is unchangeable in that aspect. I set up a POP account for Gmail as well so it will show up in my singular inbox and now only use the IMAP account on the computer to delete mail from my iPhone with push.

Have a look at your folder settings as indicated below:

Thanks guys.
I have 1 POP and 3 IMAP. Does that make a difference?

I haven't been able to point my IMAP account to the singular inbox. Note there is no folder option available for the IMAP account as there was for the POP accounts:

Outlook creates separate folder sets for IMAP thereby giving you the results you showed earlier.

I would imagine rules are the only way to organize your IMAP accounts into one inbox. I haven't tried do so as it's not necessary for me so I cannot say why rules aren't working for you.
