Change behavior of multiple accounts in Outlook 2010 as Outlook 2007

Since Outlook 2010, microsoft decided to add multiple inboxes for each account ( POP3 for an example ) you add in the same Outlook profile.

So what i want to do is add multiple accounts in one outlook profile, Exchange and 2 POP3 mailboxes, but i want only 1 inbox.

Is this an option wich i am missing or some tweak to solve this stupid behavior?

When you Add a New Account, use the Manual method and navigate (next) to the first main input screen. On that screen is an option to add a new profile (default) or use an existing one. See below

I do that and have one profile (PST) for multiple accounts. If you set one up, you should be able to import the email from the other profiles (PST files) if you wish.

This is also possible with the combination Exchange accounts and multiple POP3 accounts?

You can keep your POP accounts in one profile - no issue.

So far as I know, you need separate profiles for Exchange Accounts. That was new in Outlook 2010. But you cannot keep your Exchange account combined with a POP account in the same profile.

This was possible in Outlook 2007. All the mails wich came trough your Exchange and your POP3 ended up in the same inbox.

Well, Outlook 2010 does everything Outlook 2007 did, so you can set it up the same way. I interpreted that you wanted the Outlook profile to act as both POP and Exchange at the same instant which you cannot do (so far as I know), but if you have POP mails coming through Exchange, it will work the same way.

Just keep everything in one profile as I noted above. .. Thinkpads_User

No thats not what i want. 1 Outlook 2007 installation with a configured profile wich contains an Exchange account, a POP3 account and another POP3 account. This all 1 one profile.

Nothing to do with an exchange environment using the POP3 Connector in SBS or something.

When you have Outlook 2010, it will show you for each configured account an inbox, while in Outlook 2007, everything was dropped in an inbox, 1 ! inbox.

I don't use Exchange myself, and clients who do use Exchange don't use POP. So I cannot set up myself what you want.

However, you can keep everything in one profile by setting (checking) the option to use an exisiting data file for each account. That keeps each account all in one profile - all in one inbox. At that point it is working the same way as Outlook 2007 for me (I do not have an exchange account).

Now Outlook 2010 allows multiple Exchange profiles. I know that is not what you want, however, that change may be part of what you are seeing.

This options works great for POP3 accounts, but for Exchange accounts and POP3 accounts combined or Multiple Exchange accounts, this is not a solution.

But thank you all for your help and time!!
