Adding 2 pop/smtp accounts with diffent .pst files

I want to set up 2 outlook pop3 accounts on the same profile acct1@email.com and acct2@dif_email.com  The problem is when I set up the second email with a different data file, it names the data file personal folders (the same as the other one) and then when I associate it to the second data file all I get is a deleted items folder and a search folder.

Is there any way to set the e-mail account to have it's own  data file with its own inbox, sent items, outbox, ect...

It's fine even if they have to use the same data file so long as the second account has it's own folders (with the icons)  and receives it's own mail.

You can create multiple data files for your different mailboxes.

Open your controll panel --> mail --> Data files

in this window you can create your different pst files and assign accounts to them
