my problem is that i have 2 pop3 mail accounts on Outlook 2003(No Exchange)  going to the same inbox in the personel folder.
How can i rectify this.
I want "Alpha" account to go its personel folder and "Beta" account to go to its personel folder.

The problem started when i moved the default location of "Alpha" to C:\Outlook  folder.
When i started the outlook it asked for "alpha.pst" and i pointed to the new location.
Then i got the error message outlook cannot open folder, so i went in the Control Panel--Mail and from there i created new personel folder. It started working from there but now as i said before both accounts are going in same inbox.

At the moment i have 3 personel folders "Alpha", "Beta" and "Personel Folder".  
"Personel Folder" is not accessible and i cant delete it.

Greetings, icdl101 !

In Outlook, all POP3 emails go into the default Inbox folder.  To change this action, you need to create a Beta Inbox folder. The set a mail rule to move emails from Beta to the Beta Inbox folder.

Best wishes!
