Consolidate e-mails

I have a user of Office 2010 Outlook.  When transferring their e-mails from one computer to a new one, I found three different Outlook accounts for them.   When I imported them to new computer, the Outlook now has old e-mails until December 2017 under an account called "Outlook".   New e-mails are going to an account named for the position of the user which is where we want all the e-mails to go and come from.  The third account is "Outlook Data File".   Things like spam and trash go to different folders under any of the three accounts.   Outgoing files go to any of the three.    Any idea how I can consolidate the three under the account named for the position of the user?   We are going to be putting a new computer with Outlook 2013.

Make sure you have your 3 PST Files properly secured in a neutral (non-Outlook) location.

Make a new Email Account on the Office 2013 machine and make sure it is an account you want.

Now import the emails (Outlook, File, Open, Import/Export) to the new file. Do that for each PST file.

Look at the options about duplicates if you have duplicate emails in the 3 files.

Can I keep the same account of the position name of the user that I had before?

What you told me worked for the e-mail, but the calendar and contacts didn't import.   The calendar says Calendar (this computer only).   Any ideas?

Perhaps there were not Calendar or Contact items in the file being imported. The two things are just folders in a PST file and so if they were present, they would import. I have done this many times.
