Creating a folder in Outlook 2010

I'm using Outlook 2010 on my work Laptop PC. I integrated my work exchange server account into Outlook 2010 and also integrated my Home ISP email account into the same Outlook 2010 on this work Laptop PC, so now I can receive email from 2 sources - my work exchange server and my home ISP account. So far so good.

My home Desktop PC currently has Outlook 2003 and is also currently used to receive my home email from the ISP account. I copied the PST file from home Desktop to Work Laptop PC but it will not copy under the Home ISP directory account. It is placed into a separate "Personal" directory with a folder "Inbox" which in turn has all my sub-folders. I wanted to place PST file to be under my Home account and not be under a separate "Personal" folder....not a huge deal as I thought I can just copy or move the "Personal-Inbox" folder (PST File) to be under my Home account Inbox". What I found is that I can not create any folders under my Home email account. Even when I try to make ANY folder (by itself) under my Home email account I get a message that says "Cannot create folder. The folder 'Inbox' cannot contain subfolders. This is most likely a limitation of your IMAP server"........Is there any way around this?

and moved my Inbox PST file (includes all my personal folders and sub folders) off my home desktop PC to the Laptop PC.
