I have several IMAP emails (such as gmail accounts) checking via outlook 2003. How can I new incoming emails from several of these email accounts automatically copied to the main Inbox folder so that I can just check it at once?

    To the best of my knowledge, you can't do this natively. Outlook rules and search folders don't work with IMAP accounts. Many IMAP accounts do provide forwarding service, however, which may be the best option for you. Just forward mail from the IMAP server to your "Inbox" account. In the end, that should produce the same result as copying and even be more efficient.
