How to consolidate Inbox in MS Outlook?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have five email accounts which I have been accessing using one inbox on Outlook. When I upgraded to Outlook 2010, it automatically created an inbox for each of the five email accounts. Checking five inbox is time consuming. Can you tell me how to consolidate the five email accounts in one inbox as with the previous versions of Outlook?
