    Default Weird problem with Outlook 2010

    I have a problem with Outlook 2010.
    Normally, when you have created a new account it is an "internal" account, meaning that when you right-click on it you have an option to "Remove" it.

    When i create a new account it looks like a "mounted" PST-file, like opening or importing an already existing PST-file,
    right-clicking on it shows an option to "Close" instead of "Remove" the account.

    What is really weird is that this happens with new accounts / emailaddresses that have never been used before in Outlook.
    I know that Outlook can be weird, and create new PST-files with almost the same name, fx. if there already is a PST-file with the same name.
    But there is no "old" PST-files, i have doublechecked the folder.

    I have created & deleted accounts several times.
    I have used scanpst several times, it finds and repairs errors, but the problem remains.

    Of course i could let the new accounts continue to be "mounted", as it really doesn´t matter.
    But i suspect there is an error in Outlook, and i want to find and fix it.

    I wonder if there are any limit on the number of accounts you can have in Outlook ?

    Any ideas about how to fix this ?

    I have OL2007 so not sure things work the same way. In fact, I know there are some difference because there are no right-click options for me and I currently have 4 accounts, all POP/SMTP. But in the Tools > Account Settings menu window, I do have the option to "Remove" any of the them, even the default. I am not aware of any limits. When I was working, I had 9 or 10.

    All 4 of mine go to the same .pst file too.

    Are yours POP or IMAP?

    Under Help, have you run Office Diagnostics?

    I also have "Remove" under Tools > Account Settings.
    I´m talking about right-clicking on the name of the account (the root), in the left menu.
    POP3 !?
    I only use IMAP....
