Setting which Outlook 2007 INBOX to deliver IMAP map to

I'm using Outlook 2007 which about 5 POP accounts and 1 IMAP account.  All the POP accounts deliver mail to the general INBOX folder.  The IMAP account has created a seperate mail folder for itself with its own INBOX, SENT and other folders, making it a little inconvenient as I now have to check two INBOX folders and two SENT folders, respectively.
How can I set the IMAP account to use the same INBOX and SENT folders as my POP accounts?

It's possible to set up rules in Outlook to copy messages from one folder to another when they arrive, so you could configure Outlook to move any messages that comes in via your IMAP to your POP3 inbox. In practice, (with another IMAP service) I've found this only works moderately well as IMAP can be rather slow and unreliable at times. A better solution would be to set up a divert but I have not actually done this. Please see her for creating rules to handle your emails:

I thought about rules but figured there might be a simpler configurable option somewhere.  I'll poke around the "divert" option and see how it works...

Not the ideal solution I was looking for and I haven't investigated further for an alternative so I'm not sure if a better option exists or not...
