Windows 7: Unified inbox for multiple IMAP/exchange accounts? [Outlook 2010]

12 Sep 2011   #11

Win7 X64 Ultimate

Sorry for bumping this thread, but I saw it and I registered just to comment and help out. I had this issue as well, and my final solution was to abandon Outlook entirely, and substitute it for Thunderbird. In Thunderbird I currently have; 8 IMAP accounts. One unified inbox. Automatic signature based on which account I was e-mailed on. Automatic reply from the proper email account. I've seen others mention, not in this thread - but it's worth noting nonetheless, that you can just forward your e-mails to one account - if you've got a slew of gmail/google apps accounts - and simply use that. SPAM does not get forwarded when you do that, and GMAIL does make mistakes. Anyway, Thunderbird + Thunder plugin for calendar and sync with your google calendar is the best option I have found thus far for a single unified inbox, where you reply with the proper account and can automatically have the proper email signature (if desired). Hope this helps.

Thanks Eric - This looks like the solution I need, thanks for the details. I'm just migrating from an old laptop with XP and Office 2010, to a new laptop with Windows 7. Office 2010 on XP had a unified Inbox for my various email accounts, so it was very puzzling to not see it in Windows 7. It also used the signature appropriate to the account, and I could write an email and swap which account it was from with a click.

As everyone says, it's a puzzling, retrograde step from MS.

To add insult to injury... Outlook 2011 for Mac has a unified inbox for all accounts, but not their Windows based flagship. Nice going MS

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?
