how to receive emails from multiple accounts in the default inbox? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Office 365 Pro, in Outlook I have my main Exchange account with its Inbox folder; I also have four other accounts and I would like to have the incoming emails for all of them to go directly to my main Inbox folder (the Exchange one). So far the only way I found to do it is to setup all these accounts a POP3. Using this protocol, once in Outlook, I can go to File/Account settings/ Account settings and clicking on one of these account I have the at the bottom of the window the option to change the folder. What I wonder is if there is the possibility to do the same using a different protocol; all these accounts are Outlook.com but one that is MSN.com .

    TIA

  • Hi,

    You may consider to use inbox rules to move/copy all emails to other email accounts to the default inbox. Or, you may consider create a 'unified' Inbox view via macro as per this article:

  • Thank you for the update. Do you have concern on that you have to keep Outlook open to make the rules running? If you are creating server-side rules, there is no need to keep Outlook open. See the following article for more information about client-side rule and server-side rule:

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/outlooking/2015/05/01/client-side-vs-server-side-rules/

    If you prefer to achieve this from Exchange level, I'd recommend you post to the dedicated Exchange forum to get further assistance:

  • Thanks a lot for your advices, very useful indeed. Now I have implemented rules to move the emails from other inbox folders to my main one and indeed it works but is there a way to implement them at the Exchange level? As it is the system works if I have Outlook desktop open only. I remember I once had a "Connector" in my SBS Exchange but I cannot find it in Office 365 settings.

    Thanks again
