    We have a SBS2003 domain with Exchange running
    I have Outlook 2003 and obviously a exchange mail box.
    All business emails are coming into exchange mail box.

    Recently, I want to add a personal pop3 email and I want all my pop3 emails
    going to a personal folder( .pst)

    But OL only allow me to choose either exchange or pop mailbox as default
    delivery mailbox.

    Is there any way that I can separate 2 mail boxes? Namely, I want all
    business email going to exchange mailbox and my personal email (pop) going
    to my personal folder(pst)

    Thanks in advance

    Create two profiles, make your business profile the default. No way to do it
    in Outlook in one profile. Or do what I do: create a folder called Personal,
    and make a rule that places all your personal POP3 account mail into that
    folder.

  3. I like Gregg's idea of using a rule to move messages addressed to the POP
    account into a subfolder of your mailbox. That's what I do at home to
    separate messages from my public and private addresses. You could just as
    easily create a PST in your existing Outlook profile and have the rule move
    messages to a folder in the PST instead of the server mailbox. I like that
    idea less, because IMO it invites confusion. For example, you'll have two
    folders called "Inbox," one in the mailbox and one in the PST. Easy to get
    messages into the wrong one, not to mention that the PST would not be backed
    up.

    Of course, the best advice would be to run an SBS at home, then use Outlook
    over http or OWA to access your mailbox on the home server : -)

    I do run SBS 2003 at home with both my business accounts (Exchange) and POP3
    personal pulled by the POP3 Connector and sent to the personal mail folder
    in my Exchange mailbox.
