Add an old email account to view old emails within an existing connected account

Hi, I want to add an additional email account into an existing email account in outlook 2007.

So the live account is fine but i want to add an old account just to view old emails from that account but have the account held within my existing account for convenience to switch from account to account.

I have a pst file with all the relevant files

Thank you

Hi Censura,

What version of Exchange are you using?
Assuming the PST file is in a compatible format, you should be able, in Outlook, to do a File->Open Outlook data file and then point it to the PST file and have it become a part of your Outlook account.  There will be a separate folder showing on the left side of Outlook assuming you have that view turned on and in that folder will be all of the emails in the PST file.
