pop mail.
Can I link into the one .pst like in 2003 and 2007?  

Ive set it up as a separate .pst and it gives another set of contacts which I dont like.

Is it wise to deliver to one .pst in 2010?  I have 10 emails being delivered to one in 2003 and Im happy with it.  Would like to do like wise for a friend.

You can set it up to use one PST file (I do that myself). Outlook 2010 is different that prior versions in that it wants to default a new account to a new PST file. But you can change that during setup and point it to an exisiting PST file. See the setup below where that exists. ... Thinkpads_User

I did that and renamed the .pst name to not confuse the end user. That worked.

Odd though.

Signatures req by EU- One email address has a sig - the other none.

Outlook is too stupid to add the signature for the one that has a sig the EU has to insert sig.

Cant believe that they couldnt have sorted that.

I think that is because you can choose a signature for each account. I use the same signature, so I expect you can set that up as well. But I would not expect it to carry over because it would not know what signature you might want. ... Thinkpads_User

If you flip from the default email (no sig) in my case on the drop down menu -  to your second email (has sig) Outlook should cop it and drop the sig in automatically IMO.

I think this happens in Outlook 2003 / 07 if Im not mistaken.

Anyway - Microsoft.  They add new graphics - move everything around and forget a lot of the actual requirements that were present in previous versions.

Just my gripe.

I have adapted well to Outlook 2010 and have everything in one PST (which *was* your question orignally) and then have my signatures organized the way I use them, so at this point, it is just different.

Ah its an imperfect world.

I think software vendors get away with murder compared with other manufacturers.  

If Vista was a Car it would have been recalled and the company probably bankrupted.

Anyway thats a big tangent of thought.
