More information

You can specify both Exchange Server e-mail accounts and POP3 e-mail accounts in your profile. However, you can specify only one Inbox under the Apply changes to this folder list. This is because both Exchange Server e-mail accounts and POP3 e-mail accounts share the same Inbox for mailbox delivery.

If you combine an IMAP e-mail account together with an Exchange Server e-mail account or a POP3 e-mail account, the Apply changes to this folder list displays two Inbox entries. This behavior occurs because an IMAP e-mail account has its own personal folders store that is used as the default delivery location for the incoming IMAP messages.
