I just deleted my corporate echange account as i no longer needed it, and now I will just have a number of POP3 accounts in Outlook.  But my directory structure now looks odd to me.
It is:
Archive Folders
     Deleted items
     Inbox
     Junk e-mail
     Outbox
     RSS Feeds
     Sent items
     Search Folders
Sharepoint Lists

It seems odd that all new mail would go under the Archive Folder into Inbox.  I may just have never noticed before I do not know.  But before I create my POP3 accounts, I'd like to be sure my stucture is correct.  Can any one advise please?

It appears that Auto Archiving is ON and your POP items are old items where your Exchange items were newer. Turn off Auto Archiving for a while (week or so) and make sure your have a Personal Folder as well as an Archive Folder and make sure your POP account is working correctly. Then mail should flow into your Inbox in the Personal Folder

For the life of me I cannot create a Personal Folder.  I think that was what got deleted when I lost the Exchange account

In Outlook, File -> New -> Outlook Data File. That will help create a personal folder.

The other thing you could do is just start again (save your Archive folder) and delete all PST files. Then add your POP accounts and get it going. Then import your archive folders.
