    Outlook 2007 - Remove IMAP account but keep folders?

    A friend asked me to delete an IMAP account that belonged to one of his ex-employees. But when I did that, the account Sent and Received folders disappeared. (I got them back with a System Restore)
    These mails are all needed for reference purposes. What's the best way to remove the account but keep the data?

    Simply make another folder or folders, nested within another account (like a POP account) or in a newly created pst file, and drag everything from the IMAP account into them. Then you can safely delete the IMAP account.

    Fafner, thanks for taking the time to respond. I've asked this question on a number of boards and nobody has even answered, let alone come up with the correct solution. Much appreciated :-)
