    No longer 'one' account in OL2013?

    Due to an SSD failure, I've moved my main email stuff (OL2010) to a laptop running OL2013.
    I copied the old email and data files (pst) to the new laptop in the <appdata<Local<Microsoft<Outlook folder.
    I opened OL2013 for the first time and entered my email info. OL2013 created a folder tree based on my Comcast account. OK, good. These emails are now showing in both the INBOX and the separate email account listed in the side bar.

    I added another Comcast account. It shows up in the side bar with it's own Inbox.

    In OL2010 there was a single Inbox with multiple email accounts. How do I create that again?

    Rather than just Copy it's usually better to Import into an E-Mail Client/Program from a backup/copied .pst or .ost file, hopefully on a different drive. When I've had problems and can still get to that file I delete what is there and start over, usually works.

    Thanks for the reply but I'm still left with the multiple Inboxes, one for each email.

    When adding a new email account attach it to an existing . pst file rathet than creating a new one (default I believe)

    I tried to do that but couldn't figure it out.

    You can only do that for POP accounts. All you need to do is open the account settings (File->Account Settings) and then click on the account you want to change. After doing that, a [B]Change Folder[B] button will show up, and you can click to choose the folder (and thus the .pst file), where you want the emails from that account delivered to.
