How to unify all inboxes of multiple accounts to display all emails together in Outlook?

Therefore, the more email account you created in Outlook, the more inbox there will be. You have to shift to separate email inbox back and forth to check for emails. Is there a good way to create a unified inbox, which can collect all inboxes of multiple accounts together? This article will show you a method to achieve it.

    This worked for me first time, but after an Office Update (the following day) it failed. I contacted Addin Technology via their 'contact us' link but was advised to post here, so here I am. In between times, I solved the issue. You need to enable macros at a suitable level. Go to File->Options-Trust Centre-Trust CentreSettings->Macro Settings and select the third option down, 'Notifications for all macros'. This is slightly more risky than the recommended level, but less so than the "Enable all" option. Clever solution, but I can't help feel that there's a way to achieve a unified inbox using Office options without a VBA macro.
