• If you add a POP account and another type of account, all messages from the POP account will appear in the Inbox under On My Computer in the list of folders.

• With POP and IMAP e-mail accounts, Emails are the only items that are synchronized between Outlook and the mail server with POP and IMAP email accounts. Other items that you create in Outlook; such as contacts, calendar events, tasks, and notes, are stored locally on your computer and not on the mail server.

• To delete an account, select an account from the left pane of the Accounts dialog box and then click the Delete button. Note that when you deleted a pop account, any existing emails associated with that account will remain in Outlook; but no further messages will be retrieved or sent. After deleting an IMAP account, all emails from that account are deleted from Outlook, however, any copies you have on the server will remain there. Non-email items such as contacts and events are not deleted when you delete a POP or IMAP account.
