Transferred Outlook 2003 (old computer) via pst to Outlook 2011 (new computer). All the pst data went to default folder 'Outlook Data File'. Folders for Inbox, Drafts, etc. were populated correctly under 'Outlook Data File' folder.

When I setup the email account > Internet Email Settings > General > Mail Account, it sets up a new folder, in this example 'Wrong Folder'.

I would like the inbound email to go to 'Inbox' located under 'Outlook Data File' and not 'Inbox' located under 'Wrong Folder'. Please refer to the attachments.

We are not using Exchange Server, this is stand along.
