Here are the issues with a new installation of Office Outlook 2007.
After the IMAP install I went into tools > options > mail setup > email accounts > datafiles > add > office outlook pst
and the folders and files with the account populated their respective areas.
However I ended up with multiple personal folders.
I have one personal folder above the mail.ourserver.com and three personal folders below the imap mail.ourserver.com
I am tempted to copy the files (inbox, sent, and so forth) from the lower three personal folders into the first listed personal folder – and then delete those three personal folders leaving one personal folder.
Second: on the imap mail.ourserver.com ‘sent’ are all the older sents however on the first listed personal folder in that ‘sent’ box are the current sends? That I cannot figure out….
And lastly I have four ‘Contacts’ that I incorporated using tools/options….
The first three contact folders were old contacts used as historical reference.
The forth contract folder I named ‘Contacts 2012’. Though I added the four pst contact folders the Contact 2012 is not listed, and I cannot locate it. However, if I compose an email and bring down from the contact list – there is listed Contact 2012 – and then I can add the recipient.
I have a scrambled Outlook 2007 and manage with difficulty maneuvering through the hierarchy however having everything in logical territories would be advantages. A singular personal folder, the imap mail folder, and the current contacts all accessible.
Thanks for any help to untangle Outlook 2007.
