I need Outlook folder structure to mirror MS Word Folder structure

Is there anyway that my Outlook folders could mirror at actually be the same
folder structure as my Word folders. Or even better why couldn't my Outlook
personal storage folders be derived from the normal folder structure in
Window Explorer? I can store and use all my other MS app documents in one
folder and just double click them to use. I wish my outlook personal folders
were just tied to that structure. So if I open a folder inWin. Exp. I could
see all my documents on that matter (including emials.) in one folder.

Outlook uses a message store saved within a .pst file. There are no
folders or files in the message store. The tree list you see is purely
for organizational structure of records in the .pst database file. Once
you think of Outlook's PST file as a database then you'll understand
that it has no folders as are found in the file system of an OS.

You can set up Outlook's folder structure however you want but you can only
open the Outlook items in Outlook, not Explorer.
