Outlook - general setup

Hello, I'm a novice outlook user and would like to set it up in a specific way but can't figure out how.

1)  I have multiple email accounts.  I would like to have separate Outlook folders for these, such as "Steve", "Work", etc that would have their own inbox, sent, etc.
2)  I would like to maintain all of my contacts and my calendar in a single place, independent of #1 where I can store everything.  I've had the problem in the past that if I leave an employer, then I either lose my calendar or I can't open up outlook anymore, etc.  Another reason is that I want to have a single calendar where I can take a look at any appointments and tasks that I have.

Could someone recommend the best/easiest way to set this kind of thing up?  Any advice on the best way to organize all this stuff would be greatly appreciated!

Would it possibly make sense to set up my own server running exchange?

by the way, I created a new outlook data file for my new employer.  It won't let me delete the calendar or the contacts from there.  I'm not sure about the best way of organizing my contacts.  I will be interacting with these contacts in different capacities (I'm involved in multiple companies/business ventures)

I would see one good way is to use rules and transfer the emails directly to folders within inbox.
You can create a subfolder in inbox , example 'steve' and whenever an email comes to that address or specific subject emails , you can create rules using Rules wizard and transfer emails to that location .

Contacts and calendar could be in the same outlook.pst file

check this for rules
