I can't assign 2 different pop accounts to there datafiles

I have created 2 datafiles for 2 outlook pop accts (with different e-mail addresses).  If I switch email_1 to datafile_1 then email_2 switches to datafile_1.

The reverse applies as well If I switch email_2 to datafile_2 then email_1 switches to datafile_2.


I want to get data_1 with email_1 and data_2 with email_2

Thanks, JOe K.

can you be a little clearer?
Are you saying you have 2 pop accounts, we will call them pop1 and pop2
and two different psts we will call them pst1 and pst2.
Now when you try and connect pop1 to pst 1 and pop 2 to pst 2 it fails?
when you say it fails, can you tell us what that means?  error message, at what point etc

Not sure if you can do this the way you want.

Meaning, associating a specific account with a specific local PST file.

If using POP3 ,  would look into the free Thunderbird, which I think has a better account management.


I hope this helps !

Sorry about the lack of clarity,

"Are you saying you have 2 pop accounts, we will call them pop1 and pop2

It does not fail.  

if I associate pop1 with pst1 then pop2 gets associated with pst1 as well.

if I associate pop2 with pst2 then pop1 gets associated with pst2.

So the problem is I can't associate pop1 with pst1 and pop2 with pst2 concurrently.


Does Thunderbird support MAPI?  (a hotmail acct)

thanks, JOe K.

OK I see.  I had the same issue, I just made a rule that any e-mail that comes in from the POP2 be moved to PST2.  Let me know if you need to know how to structure the rule.
