When I open hotmail accounts within Outlook, and drag and drop a hotmail's inbox into Favorities folder, the displayed name is too long, which contains "accountname@hotmail.com Inbox", does anyone have any suggestions on how to rename it into Inbox for shorter name?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

There is no rename option when I right-clicking the name of my hotmail account within Favorities pane.

Do you have any suggestions?

Do you use Outlook Connector to access emails for Hotmail in Outlook?

If yes then renaming the Inbox folder for Hotmail in Outlook is not possible. Default folders such as Inbox, Sent Items, etc. also cannot be renamed in Outlook even if listed under Favorites.
