hi,

i am using outlook 2010 on a new machine. i installed it, and gave it too accounts, one of which i used on another machine. subsequently, i copied my pst form the other machine on to this machine, and opened it with outlook.
the above has left me confused , and not with the result i wanted

when i send mail, which database is it pulling my email addresses from.
there are now three sets of folders.I want one... they correspond to the following pst's
c:\users\Abby\Documents\outlook Files\abbya@calldcap.com.pst
c:\users\Abby\Documents\outlook Files\dcapfamilyins.pst
C:\mailbox\abby.pst

it is the last one i desire to keep, and which has my contacts and email address..
can i simply delete the other two, and will loose these other two undesired set of folders, and populate my addressbook?

Did you import or open outlook data file?  You should be able to just right click on those folders if you are in folder list view and select close.  You will be left with just the folders you want.

Alternatively, you could create a new profile as while and just open the pst you want.

By creating a new profile, outlook starts from scratch and does not import or open the previously available psts. Since psts are local files, one would need to reopen from file, import, open outlook data file.

Psts are exports of email calendar contacts or other outlook data.
