Windows 7: Hating Outlook 2013 - where can I set LOCAL data folder

Hating Outlook 2013 - where can I set LOCAL data folder

Hi there
Why does NEW software seem increasingly WORSE than the older releases -- Outlook 2010 (using IMAP) gives me local data folders(data file) and the IMAP (server) folders.

I can just about tolerate the horrible colours but :

Sometimes I just move / copy emails from the IMAP folder to the local folder so I can then delete them off the server --otherwise I can get zillions of emails stored on the server.

Office 2013 Outlook doesn't seem to have a LOCAL set of folders -- how do I set this up or is this not possible any more

(Thinking of reverting back to Outlook 2010 !!!).

Another horror - Whatever you set to reading pane it always shows TWO lines - subject and 2nd line is a bit of the email

I can't get a nice clean display like Outlook 2010
