Outlook 2010: Save POP email to Exchange mailbox??

Hello,

In the past several versions of Outlook, it was possible to use Exchange as the default delivery location for all POP email. By setting up the Exchange account first and then the POP accounts, we could have the choice to use a PST file or Exchange as the default delivery location. This allowed us to backup all our users various email messages with the server backups and it also allowed the users to hit send/receive to instantly fetch their various POP accounts.

It appears with Outlook 2010, it forces you to create a local PST file for POP mail delivery, which doesn't work for us. We know that 3rd party products will download POP emails to Exchange, by-passing Outlook, but we don't want to have to purchase another piece of software and support it. The 3rd party software also doesn't allow users to press send/receive and retrieve a message immediately from their POP account.

Does anyone know how to get the POP emails to be delivered and stored in the Exchange data file rather than a PST file? Is that functionality removed from Outlook 2010?

Many Thanks!

'File tab|Account Settings', select your POP account, click the "Change Folder" button, and select your Exchange Inbox as the "New E-mail Delivery Location".Hal

As stated by Hal, if you click on "File > info > Account Settings > Account Settings" and select your account you"ll find the "Change folder" as shown below.

Ah, I had to create the account with the PST and then change it to use Exchange. It's an extra step that wasn't in previous versions but it gets the job done!

Thanks for the help!!!
