    Anyone know how the change the "default inbox" that is linked to the Desktop Alerts?

    I have 3 different email addresses (all POP accounts), all residing under the same profile. I created separate .PSTs for each address, and therefore they each have their own inbox/outbox/sent items/deleted items folders. My primary email address is linked to the "Personal Folders" .PST, and is set as the default account for sending mail. However, the Desktop Alerts that keep appearing are from one of my secondary accounts, an email addy that I only use for online shopping and therefore receives tons of ads and spam.

    Needless to say, I want to be alerted when emails come to my main account, not when Best Buy or Old Navy sends me their spam of the day. :rolleyes: So how do I change which inbox is linked to the Desktop Alerts?

    Thanks!!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Have you tried to go into Tools>>Account Settings from the menu bar and then used the up arrow to change the priority on your main account so that it is at the top of the list? I do not use multiple accounts but would suggest that you check that out.

    I have already been to that menu, and on the "Email" tab, the desired account is already set as the default (and it is already at the top of the list). The same account/.PST is also already set as the default on the "Data Files" tab as well . . . yet still, my Desktop Alerts are coming from a different mail account . . . :confused:
