Destination folder can't be changed, When converting eml to Outlook, the destination folder can't be changed
When converting eml to Outlook, the destination folder of Outlook Stores / [emailadr] cannot be changed. It shows up on the destination line as \\[emailadr]. I would like to convert a different folder.
Leo Bourne,

Why can't you change the destination?
You need to press blue button on the right and select a folder from a list of the folders.
Leo Bourne, Now I see the folders within Outlook, but wanted to save the imported file in a different location. Looks like that is not possible. This is my first time using the program, so please excuse my naive questions.

Also, at first when I hadn't clicked again to see the Outlook folders, I just converted some eml to Outlook without selecting a folder. Please, where did the data go?
Leo Bourne,

Can you give more information about "wanted to save the imported file in a different location"?
What do you want to do?

The utility can't be run without selection of the destination folder. If you select the account only then the massages will be in this root folder.
Leo Bourne, I had a local folder in Live Mail, and wanted to import the eml messages to a local folder in Outlook as pst under the same name, but perhaps in a different location than the Outlook account. I see now that this is not the way Outlook works.

While trying to learn the program I imported a large quantity of eml messages just to the root, without selecting a folder. I would appreciate if you could kindly tell me where that root is located, because I will need to delete those messages and reimport to an Outlook local pst folder after I create one.

I am not sure of the difference between Outlook 2016 personal file folder pst and data file pst. They seem to be serving the same purposes.
Leo Bourne,

In Outlook you can add addition PST data file.

Press right mouse button the account folder, select Data File properties, point to Home page tab, and de-select 'Show home page by default for this folder' option. Press Ok button.
Then point to this folder and delete messages.
You can turn the option back if you need ToDo page.
Thanks very much for your kind advice.
