Outlook 2003 mail delivery

Hi,

I have setup two seperate email accounts in Outlook2003, they are both pop3 and I have created two seperate pst datafiles.

All I want is that one email account be delivered to the one datafile and the other account to the other one, however when I select (in account setup) the delivery location for new mail I can only seem to change it to one or the other - not a different location for each account.

Can this be done, I'm sure it can because it just seems common sense to me !!

I would prefer to do this without creating another profile in Outlook

Regards


Matt

You can only have email delivered to one inbox in a particular profile, but it doens't have to stay there.  If you don't want to have seperate profiles then you can create a Rule to move specific messages to the other PST file.  You would:

1.  Click TOOLS->RULES AND ALERTS
2.  Click NEW RULE, then click START FROM A BLANK RULE->NEXT
3.  Choose CHECK MESSAGES WHEN THEY ARRIVE->NEXT
4.  Check "THROUGH THE SPECIFIED ACCOUNT" and click the word ACCOUNT and choose the account #2->OK->NEXT
5.  Check "MOVE IT TO THE SPECIFIED FOLDER" and click the word SPECIFIED and choose the folder in the other PST->OK->NEXT
6.  Leave exceptions blank and click NEXT
7.  Give the rule a name, check to turn the rule on and click FINISH

If you want to move any existing emails to test the rule check "Run this rule now on messages already in 'Inbox'" in step #7

Delete?  I wasn't to keen on the "B" for a perfectly clear explaination and solution, I'm even less enamored with a deletion.  Has a deletion been requested?

well, the rules solution doesn't exactly do what I wanted anyway, as when I reply they emails show in the sent items of my default mailbox - not the mailbox that the email was sent to. So in fact the accounts aren't totally seperate.

I didnt request deletion, but I  gave you the points even though the solution isn't what I wanted - what is the problem with that !!

It's normal proceedure here to actually provide that information, ie to let me know why the solution provided doesn't isn't exactly what you need, so that we can try to find a solution that does.  From my perspective it appears I am getting a lower grade for not reading your mind.

I'm not under the impression my solution was all encompassing and perfect, but it was clear and provided the specific functionality that you requested, and you had 3 months to reply at least once with additional details.  You chose not to do so, so that fact that my solution didn't address those is hardly a reasonable explaination for a lower grade.
