Delivering IMAP mail to personal folders inbox

Hi, I'm running Outlook 2003.  I have 3 email accounts, two POP3 and one IMAP.  Both POP3s download directly into the personal folders inbox, while the IMAP account stays on the server and must be checked separately.

I know it's against the spirit of IMAP, but is there a way to have email downloaded from the IMAP server and into the inbox along with the other POP3 mail?  Do I need a rule or is there a better way?

Thanks!  Joe

You can use a rule if you are comfortable with it .
Try this aswell

Open outlook
go to tools --> email accounts --> view or change existing email account
click on that account in that list so that you can enable it
at the bottom , deliver new email to the following location , either choose from the list or press new outlook data file and put in there

I had tried that - I have two "personal folders" options to choose from - apparently IMAP creates its own.  I've tried half a dozen times to switch, including exiting and reentering outlook (they both have the same name and I can't rename personal folders, it appears) and still no luck.  Is this a "feature"?

interesting - that setting applies to all accounts - I thought it was assigned individually.

I created a new personal folder, and all mail went to it from the other accounts - but still not that IMAP account.

I'll try messing with a rule, just wondering if there was a more "correct" way to set this up.

Thanks - Joe
