>>> some users tasks folders become hidden.
You mean that you cannot see the folder itself in the Folder List in Outlook?  Or that the folder appears to be empty?

If they were not visible in the Folder List, what did you do to make them "visible"?

the "Tasks" folder in the outlook folder list becomes hidden.  Only the "Tasks" folder is affected. the task list can still be acessed from the shortcut bar.

So when you click on Task on the shortcut bar and open the folder list you can see the Task folder in the Folder List?  Maybe I'm not understanding the problem :(

no you see the tasks.  all of the task functtionality still works.  You can create, assign a task etc.  The problem is that the task folder itself dissapears from the folder list.

Right, when you click on the Task shortcut, you see the contents - gotcha.  Now, open the Folders List when you are looking at the contents of the Task folder.  Is the Tasks folder highlighted?  Is it on the root mailbox or is it a subfolder of something else?  I'm trying to understand where it may have disappeared to.

What I mean is that if you browse the M drive and the users mailbox his "tasks folder" attributes have been changed to hidden.  This hapens only on a few users and it is random.

AFAIK, nothing on the M drive should be touched, changed, etc.  Its a live and let live thing.
