I recently began to use Outlook for my email.  I was previously using Windows Live Mail.  I imported mail from 2 separate POP3 accounts.  I have 3 sets of folders (Inbox, Sent, Drafts, Deleted, etc.).  The set at the top has no contents.  The other two are one for each account that I imported.  Is there a way for the set at the top to consolidate all the mail of the other two accounts?

Did you set your Outlook with your account? when new email arrive to which folder he goes?

You can mark folder content (CTRAL + a) and drag it to the folder you want that will consolidate the data from both account, note that the file size is not bigger then 10GB (after merge) that will slow Outlook

And after it's done you can close the data file with right click on the 'Personal Folder' and close personal folder

I understand moving all the content to different folders; however, new mail will continue to go to the respective folders under the individual accounts.  I would like all the mail to come into one inbox; the sent mail to one "sent" folder, etc.  I don't understand what you mean by setting Outlook with my account.  Please explain.

You wrote that you have one set of folders with no content so I was not sure that you set your Outlook account..

As for having all your mails coming into one folder you can change the delivery location for each account
