I don't think you can.

I wouldn't want to hide drafts as that is where Outlook stores messages that haven't been sent.

you mean it's not possible to hide/remove even the Journal?

I haven't seen any references to hiding the core folders within Outlook.
I did have a Google before I posted a response and nothing came back - there were a couple of newsgroup posts where a similar question was asked but no responses.

Here is a way to do it. This may sound strange, however, hiding them is not very common. You could create a personal folder with just one folder, "INBOX" and have all email delivery to this folder. Yes it is a PST and not on the exchange server, but you have now eliminated the other folders. What is the objective of hiding them anyway. just curious

let me try that,

the objective is to unclutter the interface with unnecessary folders.

i guess it'll work but,
everything except the calendars, how do i make it the primary, so that tasks will remind me when they are up? if i can make another calendar as my primary calendar then this is exactly what i need.

i was looking for a registry tweak, but this might have to do.
