    Outlook 2010's naming convention for IMAP change?

    Has Outlook changed their naming convention for IMAP accounts? Now if I set up an IMAP account -- like GMail -- the PST Outlook creates is "GMail - Outlook 2010.pst."

    I kinda know that it's Outlook 2010! It's enough to have to go through gyrations to name the PST to start with, but it seems impossible now to ditch the "- Outlook 2010" that is so rudely added.

    Is it something I should do differently to avoid this naming convention change -- besides just not worrying about it?

    Regards,

    I found the culprit: SP-1. I went back to pre-SP-1 Office, and Outlook behaved itself. So I'll back it up and then install SP-1. Probably since the accounts are already set up they will be left alone.

    Who ever thought that idea was a good one should have not.

    Resolved it seems - SP-01 SlipStream convention

    OK, I just started Outlook all over -- reinstall from the start.

    Before I had used a slipstreamed Office 2010 install DVD. This time I used the "native" DVD.

    Then I set up my e-mail addresses - POP and IMAP.

    No name changes at all everything worked as expected. An account named HomeBox got a PST named HomeBox in both POP and IMAP.

    What that leaves me with is the conclusion that something in using a slipstreamed install DVD (SP-1 merged) changes the program somehow. Don't know how -- or why -- but it happens. So using a slipstreamed DVD isn't -- to me -- worth the bother. I'd rather have the freedom of naming my PST's as I'd like an then just installing SP-1.

    That's all the news for today...
