This is particularly handy when you want to have a unified Inbox folder or use Search Folders all across you mailbox.You can set delivery to a single Inbox folder but also a subfolder of it or a new parent level folder.Using a Hotmail Connector account to hold mail from other accounts can also result in all replies coming from the Hotmail address.
You can’t change the delivery location for Hotmail Connector or IMAP accounts.
If you want the mail delivered to a different folder, you’ll need to configure the accounts as POP3 accounts.
This can be a single pst-file for all accounts but also a dedicated pst-file per POP3 account.
In Outlook 2007, the default is the Inbox of your default data file (pst-file or Exchange mailbox) but in Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016, the default is a dedicated pst-file per POP3 account.
In contrast to using rules to separate your email, you’ll still be getting an envelope in your Notification Area when a new mail arrives.
