Getting hotmail into outlook 2007 mail folders.

I just got hotmail plus. Email goes into outlook but into separate folders
created under my hotmail address. How do I get email to go into the regular
outlook mail folders automatically? Thanks.

Exchange and POP3 accounts get their messages aggregated into the one
(default) personal message store. I haven't used IMAP4 but someone told
me that each IMAP4 account gets its own message store and hence its own
folders. I do know that each HTTP account gets its own message store
and hence its own set of folders. Also, rules do not get applied on
HTTP accounts. You will need to define server-side rules.

How do I define server-side rules so that email goes into the standard
Outlook Inbox, instead of the separate inbox that''s under the hotmail
address? Can you break it down in simple steps?
Thanks

You don't. Server-side rules only apply against the account in which
they are defined. Then you yank them using your local e-mail client.
Nothing on the server can reconfigure how your local e-mail client
functions. Since they are HTTP accounts, each gets its own local
message store. Each local message store shows its own set of folders.
For example, if you use auto-archiving to move old items into an
archive.pst file and then use File -> Open to view that archive PST
file, it is a separate message store so it shows its own set of folders.

You won't get HTTP account and POP3/Exchange folders to merge their
e-mails. You can't even do it using rules because rules don't work on
HTTP accounts.

I already replied to your post in Outlook General Questions (where Vanguard
has pointed out why you should not post separately to different groups), but
here is my answer again: Try the Outook Connector, which is free and gives
you more options for managing your Hotmail account in Outlook, though the
messages will still come into a separate Hotmail folder.
