    Outlook 2007 moving from POP to IMAP; issues w/special folders
    « on: February 28, 2016, 12:37:55 PM »
    Hi,
    my wife is using Outlook 2007 but the account was originally setup with POP acct. many years ago,way before having a tablet and smart phone.
    Her phone and tablet are set in Imap. I would like to "convert" her Outlook to IMAP as well, and found this website http://www.msoutlook.info/question/634 that explains how to proceed in 3 easy steps:

    1) deleting the pop3 account
    2) adding the IMAP acct
    3) move personal folders/emails from former POP to newer IMAP

    If I understand the article correctly, I might get stuck with 2 sets of special folders (inbox, sent items, etc), which will be cause for confusion. For instance, once all the emails from the original Pop Inbox are moved to the new Imap inbox, will I be able to delete the old pop inbox?

    Thanks in advance,
