Outlook 2007 2 email accounts

I have Outlook 2007. I use it primarily for work with exchange 2003. All of my mail is defaulted to the exchange mailbox. I also have a Comcast account for my personal home account.

My main question is, I want to receive my mail from exchange and have my work account go to my default mailbox in Outlook 2007. Then I want my Comcast account to go to a separate folder & data file. I dont want either account to mix with the other.  Just 2 accounts each going to their separate folders & data files.

Please Help

Thank You

Click Tools, Account settings, Create a new account.  They will be totally separate.

I created a new account for my Comcast (POP3) account, the end result- it is using my exchange mailbox, not a separate folder as I needed.

I tried the same thing using my Gmail account (IMAP), this end result worked great. In the Mail Folders column there is a separate folder showing my full Gmail account all Gmail mail from that account is only going their.

I sent an email from my wifes account to my Comcast account, I recived it in my work exchange mailbox, it should have went to a separate folder.

I sent an email from my wifes account to my Gmail account; it went to the Gmail folder just like I should have. The IMAP automatically setup a receiving folder .pst file where all the incoming mail goes when is received from that specific account.

Why does the Gmail (IMAP) work just right, but the Comcast (POP3) does not?

Thanks

You can set up a gmail account to pop ur comcast account and just use IMAP at work via the gmail account.  Also the gmail will send as the comcast email.  Also I never use my ISP email as you then are stuck with a non portable email address.

I agree, I use  my home Gmail (IMAP) on my home Outlook as well on my iPhone it all works great together.  But I have an account through Comcast only for eBay that has been in use way before Gmail existed, there has to be a way to configure it, to work only in outlook 07.

What I mean is with your gmail account you can actually pop the comcast email and get the comcast mail in the gmail account.

These links could be of some use if you've not yet had a look at it:

http://www.ehow.com/how_2175783_set-up-comcast-email-outlook.html

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA010956951033.aspx

Else the only way I could think to resolve this is to create a separate pst file for your COMCAST Mailbox & create a separate Inbox folder into it.
Then create an Outlook  rules, use the "With specific words in recipient's address" and configure the rule to move the appropriate email to the proper Inbox folder in the newly created PST.

Hope this helps
