How to combine new outlook.com account with my other email accounts

I have several POP3 email accounts set up in Outlook 2010, all going to the same .pst file, and all are combined in the same Inbox in Outlook--just like I want it.

But today I set up a new account with outlook.com.  When I went to automatically configure it in Outlook, I see that it is set up as an IMAP account.  I also see that it has its own .ost file.  What's wrong is that it is separate from the others when I run Outlook, with its own Inbox, Sent, Deleted, etc.  Is there a way to combine it with all the others, where I have one single Inbox?  With the way it is now, I'm afraid I won't see inbound emails, because normally Outlook sits in my other Inbox all day (the one that handles all the POP3 accounts).  TIA

I don't think you can export Outlook.com to a PST file, at least no native way I know of. So you would have to forward Outlook.com emails to your regular account

So is this "separation" due to the fact that the outlook.com account is IMAP, vs. all my others as POP3?

I'm under the impression that some email providers can be set up as POP3 --or-- IMAP.  If that is an option for outlook.com accounts, I would need to know how to set it up that way in Outlook 2010.

Actually, (digging back in my past before Microsoft owned Hotmail), there does appear to be a POP3 connecter. There is one on the page here - try it

Also refer to this Microsoft link as you may have to add Outlook.com with an Exchange Active Sync type. I am not certain and I am experimenting.

Use the second link. Outlook.com is an Exchange system and needs to be set up as per the second Outlook.com link above. It works. It creates a local OST file leaving Outlook.com email on the server but you can then move or copy the emails into your PST if you wish.

I have tested it and it is working.
