hey guys. Sorry but I don't understand your answers quite well.

I was able to pop3 a gmail account and to pop -with other accounts (not hotmail...)- to only one pst.

So, I don't understand why I cannot do that with hotmail moreover when I am using Microsoft Outlook

I mean, is is so weird what I am asking, when man plans to go to touch Mars... ?

I still raise my original question. I am able to view, read, reply to the Hotmail emails in Outlook 2007 while off line. These emails must be stored on my computer somewhere and I assume that is in my pst file.

I do have a separate inbox for Hotmail as opposed to the inbox for my other four email accounts as shown in the snip I posted previously. I know of no way to combine the Hotmail inbox into my main inbox. My guess is that Outlook sets Hotmail up this way because of synchronizing with the Hotmail account. This really works very well in that when I delete emails from the Hotmail inbox in Outlook, these emails are also deleted from Hotmail.

The file is an OST file and it is located in the same folder as your outlook.pst

There are 2 diff ways to configure hotmail into outlook 2010. One using the outlook connector, no pst files for this type. Another using pop3 settings. Using this, u can point ur mails to ur orig outlook pst. This can be done while setting up. If not, open account settings, select the hotmail account and click on change folder and select the folder inside ur personal folder i.e other than hotmail.

Other option is to recreate the hotmail account and specify ur orig outlook pst for email delivery.

Hope I am clear.

Thank you both very much for the information. I will reset mine this evening. Good info on the ost file. I was not aware of this. This is what I love about this forum; I never cease to learn.
