Quickly merge or combine Inbox folders of multiple accounts in Outlook

Author: Siluvia Last Modified: 2020-05-14

Normally, each email account in Outlook has its own Inbox folder. If you have created multiple email accounts in your Outlook, the corresponding Inboxes will be created at the same time. Have you ever tried to categorize the emails by message type and merge all the same type emails from inboxes across email accounts in Outlook? Here we introduce the Merge Inboxes feature of Kutools for Outlook to quickly merge Inbox folders from different accounts in Outlook.

I have 1 exchange account (hotmail) and 4 IMAP accounts (GMail and 3 Business accounts). Does this tool work? The addin states that it does not work for IMPAP and Exchange account? Does it only work for POP3 accounts then?
