Windows 7: Outlook 2010 Folder Names Etc

04 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) (build 7600)
Outlook 2010 Folder Names Etc

When I created an e-mail account I was surprised to see 4 or 5 new folders under my e-mail name, which is the name of the folder according to its properties.

I now have basically 3 main groups of Folder headings and am confused.
Here is how they look on my computer:

Inbox (always empty, my incoming mail goes to my e-mail folder Inbox)
Sent Items (always empty, sent mail show in my e-mail folder Sent Items)
Deleted Items (always empty, deleted mail show in my e-mail folder deleted Items)

Junk E-Mail
(plus other folders)

Sent Items
Deleted Items

I would prefer that my folder called Outlook Data Files contain all of my folders.
Also, as the sole user of my PC would this have anything to do that a folder with my e-mail address is identified as a folder?

Thanks for any help.

Hi, Tegiro! :)

You can only set the PST store folder for POP accounts. To do so, check your settings here:

Does Windows save logs somewhere that shows folder names / file names?
Probably it doesn't and my question is a long shot - but I recently toasted a drive, and it had many folders and files which I have little memory of. I also never used one of those nice apps that makes a list. Any help appreciated. Much obliged. Tt
