HI, I have several email addresses. all but one shows up in Personal Folders on outlook 2007.

The one with a separate folder is an IMAP account, the rest are POP3. Is there any way I can make the IMAP account show up in Personal Folders?

The IMAP one is a gmail account, the others are with other servers; rackspace, bluehost...

You can't really do anything here. Personal folders is a PST file (looks like it is associated with POP3 account). IMAP accounts make use of local OST cache. You can't merge them.

If you don't mind moving them from one mailbox to another you can create a rule in Outlook that takes everything that arrives to one (or many) mailbox(es) to a desired container/folder.

did you choose the option to run the rule now, to check if it moves existing emails?

I didn't, but I did send myself an email to the IMAP address. Run the rule now runs the rule on the inbox... the upper inbox. Wonder if I need to set the rule elsewhere? Thanks.

I set up the same rule on the lower inbox, then hit "run the rule now..", but it is not happening still.
