Help - I accidentally erased my "unread mail" folder in Outlook 2003 and I can't figure out how to get it back.
All of my other folders are fine and the inbox works fine but that unread folder was a real nice convenient feature.
Is it possible to get it back?

Thanks
Les

Right click on 'Search Folders' click 'New Search Folder' and 'Unread Mail' and then 'OK'

If you want then, you can drag it to the outlook shortcut bar or your favorite folders.

Ray, I am always asking questions in the programming and database areas and those guys have always helped me a LOT. I've tried answering questions there but the REAL web/db experts are on top of it. So I decided to monitor a couple other areas that I do know well and try to give back to the community. =]

peace
Mike
