How can I embed a Calendar folder in an Outlook 2010 IMAP PST?

I'm considering switching from POP3 to IMAP in Outlook 2010, but there seem to be several drawbacks with Microsoft's implemention of IMAP.

1) I don't seem to be able to move the PSTs.
2) I don't seem to be able to back up the PSTs.
3) I don't seem to be able to change the delivery folders in the PSTs.

All of these I might be able to live with, but I cannot find a way to add a Calendar folder to the IMAP PSTs.  According to my web searches, you're supposed to be able to do this somehow, but I can't get it to work.  I may not understand IMAP well enough.  Obviously, I'd also like to add Contacts, Notes, etc.  Does anyone know if this is possible to do in Outlook 2010?

Thanks,

Peter

Add a pst file for these items that you need.

That was the solution I came up with, but then the calendar doesn't sync across devices.  That pushes it over the hump of being not worth doing - mainlining two different files.

OK, thanks.  I think I'll just leave it.  it looks like the implementation in Office 2013 is better, but I don't feel like going the upgrade buzz.
