Hi, I have reinstalled XP, and Outlook 2002. I had a nightmare importing all my required e-mail, which I will need. I have sorted out everything that I need and put it into my default folder. My problem is I cannot close an additional personal folder. I get an error message that the required objects cannot be found. I have seen a previous post and the answer is to go to Tool/ Services and look for the additional folder. Unfortunately I haven got/cant find a "Services" in the tool menu. Can any one point me in the correct direction please?Mike

Hi trenarren,
"services" is used when you are in an exchange environment, if you're running Outlook on a stand alone computer, you should be looking for "accounts" instead of "services".

Hope this helps!

Ahhh, sounds good. OK, Ive gone to "accounts" and gone to view or change the E-Mail accounts box. This leads me to my account delivery folder. This is my default folder, I can see the other folder by clicking on the "deliver to the following location". I can change this to the "other" folder, but i cant delete or close the "other" folder.

Hi, I have been to the mail Icon in the control panel, but it is only showing my default account. I have now deleted that mail account and started a new profile. Looks like I am going to have to merge it all in again! Still, problem now solved.
Thanks for your time and patience!
