Outlook 2010-Sent and Deleted Items are located in Inbox

I have a dual-boot machine set up with XP Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate.

I just installed Outlook 2010 and set up my first email account, it autoconfigured, and all was well.

I set up my second email account which is my domain address, and I was surprised to see it set up as IMAP (In OE it was set up as Pop3). The account was working fine as IMAP so I didn't investigate.

Next, I tried the demo version of a utility that is supposed to export OE mail to .pst files that can be imported into Outlook 2010. I tried the import, it didn't work, and that's when I noticed that my "Drafts" folder, "Sent Items", and "Deleted Items" are all located in my Inbox, as subfolders. Of course I looked at my Pop3 account and the folders are all displayed as siblings there.

I tried to move the folders out of the Inbox but was met with a "No can do" message (I can't remember the wording. I can provide it if necessary).

I'm not real experienced with IMAP, but I'm pretty sure those folders shouldn't be in the Inbox. Am I correct on this?

Is anyone aware of a way to get those folders as siblings of the Inbox, or do I have to start over?

Thanks!

That demo version of utility may have created those folders. Delete the IMAP account, and create a new one.
