Move default inbox from personal folder to Exchange Mailbox in outlook 2003

Posted on 2004-10-27
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
We have a remote user who has outlook 2003. He went into the control panel and opened mail. We clicked "add a new email account". He checked "Microsft exchange Server", he then typed the name of the exchange server, checked the box "cached exchange mode" and typed name in user account. He checked the "check name" and it the name was underlined.

It then went to a prompt, do you want it on private or personal folders. He checked the box
personal folders. When he opened outlook it removed his mail from the exchange server and placed it in in inbox under his personal folder. That mail is no longer on the exchange server.

How can we change outlook so the the mail remains on the exchange server and he can access it by opening the inbox under mailbox - his name rather than the inbox under personal folders

    Accepted Solution

    open outlook
    go to tools   --> email accounts --> view or change existing email accounts
    his exchange server would appear there. click on it to enable it
    At the bottom there should be
    "Deliver new email to the following location" , in that press the drop down menu and choose mailbox ..

    From now on , new email would go there

    Also you should be able to copy the emails from personal folder to mailbox
