OS: Win XP Sp2
Email Client:  Outlook Express 6
Email Server:  Hotmail (premium)

First off - I have an email folder no longer in use at the top. Itwas some special pop address that  could actually did download my hotmail messages and wanted me to pay for the service, it worked.  Well, I want to delete that pop account and itss folder in Outlook EXp6 and all it's contents.  
I already deleted that pop account in "accounts" but the folder and inbox remains... I do I get rid of it???

2ndly - Regarding my Hotmail Account in Outlook Exp 6:  I created a regular HTTP  hotmail account, all configurations OK.

A new Hotmail folder (w/ the butterfly logo) appeared  on the  folders pane (left) and after clicking send/recieve button 4 new subfolders appeard and it  downloaded all of my hotmail messages into a delete folder - which contains all my previously viewed and unviewed hotmail messages this new Deleted Items (39)  folder.   (39) is the number of unread messages in the folder, there are also 70+ viewed messages in this new Deleted Items Folder.

Above that is a Sent Items folder and an Inbox Folder (1)  with the latest new message that someone sent me a few hours ago.

At the bottom is a folder that says:Bulk Mail - this new folder containing Junk Mail.

All of these strange, incorrect subfolders exist under the main hotmail folder.

WHAT IS GOING ON HERE???    

1.) How do I delete that first main pop folder (unrelated to hotmail) ???

2.) How do I properly configure my HTTP hotmail (premium) account to work with Outlook Express 6 ???

What fixed it was:


Outlook Express 6
----------------------

1.) To delete the unwanted POP folder and messages:   Right click on the folder name and get the file-path.  copy and paste into address bar, go, and delete that folder and all it's contents.


2.) Regarding  the strange Hotmail folder (http):    Checked Hotmail.com: All my inbox messages had been mysteriously placed into delete folder.  
                                                                         Selected all and sent back to inbox.  [send/recieve on Outlook 6)  and all the messages came
                                                                         back to my inbox!  

Explanation:

1.)   Perhaps that  strange 3rd party POP server when it sent all of my  Hotmail e-mails  to it's  Outlook pop account folder  -  also placed all my emails in the delete box in an attempt to "emulate"  hotmail  to become as if it were real POP3 server.
 
2.)  The Hotmail Folder is back to normal and the Bulk Mail - was  really just "Junk Mail"  .
