For some reason I have lost all the forders in MS exchange.   When I open my Inbox the folders in MS exchange are not displayed not can they be accesed.  I have no folders.   WHERE do I go to redirect this program to find these folders.      This did happen once before and I found them ( I cannot remember how )    It is very important I get these back.     Please help.

Thanks
Steve

Does it have something to do with Exchange using/opening a different *.pst file?  Verify that Exchange is using the one YOU want.

Sorry man, unless for some reason your views got messed up.  If click on VIEW-->Folders, does it do anything?

FYI... That *.pab file is your "Person Address Book".

Check you Mail/Fax/Inbox settings in COntrol Panel.  You need to have Exchange Services and Personal Folders Services installed.  Since you had the folders before, the services should still be there, but double check.  You might try to do a file/import from Echange.  Import your mailbox.pst.  This might contain the personal folders, but you won't know until you import it.

FYI:  .pst is a personal store.  mailbox.pst is the default name.

assuming your file mailbox.pst is the relevant mailbox-file, do the following: in exchange go to extras/options/services (in german it is Extras/Optionen/Dienste/Hinzufügen) and add a new personal folder (persönlicher Ordner). You will become a dialog-box with which you can select the above file.
