    I have searched on this forum and others and see that other's have had the same issue but there does not seem to be an answer.

    I need to set-up MS Outlook 2010.

    I want to hook up to my ISP (comcast) with IMAP AND I want to use my existing outlook data file (.pst file) to be associated with the email.

    I go through setting up my email profile and if I were to set-up POP3, Outlook allows me to select my existing .pst. But it does not allow this for IMAP. Meanwhile, my ISP says I should use IMAP.

    Does anybody have a solution to this?

    You can use the PST file as a secondary file but not for the new IMAP. In Outlook simply go to File then to Open then to Open Outlook Data File.
