I have an account with on Yahoo! Mail, another on Gmail. In Outlook 2007, I've set them up so that I can access them without having to go to their websites.

I've password protected my personal folder, but can't find a way to merge my accounts into one personal folder.

When I want to switch between my accounts, I must type my password again. Besides that, I can't check for new mail messages in both accounts at the same time.

How do I merge multiple email accounts into one single personal folder on Outlook 2007?

After you add your email accounts you can create rules for each account to be moved to a particular folder:

  1. Go to Tools | Rules and Alerts
  2. Click the New Rule button and in the Rules Wizard window select the Check messages when they arrives and click Next.
  3. In Which condition(s) do you want to check? tick the through the specified account and select 1st account (i.e. Gmail), and click Next.
  4. In the What do you want to do with the message? tick the move it to the specified folder and select a location for it. Click Next, Next, name your rule and then click Finish

Repeat steps for Yahoo account.
