Adding POP3 Account to Outlook 2010

Just recently upgraded to Outlook 2010.  My pop3 accounts were transferred over as well as my exchange account.  

Now I need to add a new POP3 account however I get an error message when I try to use the existing outlook2.ost file:
The file you chose is not an Outlook Data File.  You must select a new file of this type.

I already have too much as is, and would not like to use a new OST / PST file.  How can I use the same (local) OST os I don't have to worry about switching files, etc?
