For multiple accounts, I'm trying to understand if the data for each account is held separately.

My main concern is to have a single backup location, not 10 or 12 that represent all of my email accounts.

I know you can create another account, like "My Personal Folders" (not based on an email name) from "Create or Open Data File" that will show within the folder list. But how might all the accounts be associated?

If the user goes to Export - with all subfolders checked. Does it matter which email account is present above all the folders being exported while doing so - this is no minor point?

- Much appreciate any help. Even a manual like "Plain and Simple, Microsoft Outlook"(Boyce) doesn't clarify.

It depends on how you have set up your Outlook. If each account is using a separate Personal folder, then each is a separate PST file. Look on your system and see if you have more than one PST file.

I have all of my email going into one PST file, from 4 different email addresses.

How might this be done?

Setting up from scratch -- simply assign all the same name, then copy the .pst that is to be restored from another pc making it under that same.pst name?
