How to make Outlook folder undeletable by user?


each computer at this client has a junk mail folder and users are constantly deleting the folder itself rather than the email in it.  Is there a way to make this folder undeletable?  Windows XP, Office XP

Are the users local admins on their computers? If this is the case then the simple answer is no. If they are not admins, then you can just set the security permissions on the folder to prohbit them from deleting it.

not admins...they need to be able to delete emails just not the folder, permissions should work for that right?
Hey there!

Indeed its a permission problem that we face here.  On your Junk mail folder, go to the security tab, then enter the Advanced parameters.  In there you can add special permissions.  Modify your user, giving then whatever permission you like, BUT deny them the "Delete"  permission and Allow the "Delete Subfolders and Files" permission.

Pretty sure this is gonna solve your problem!!

Well .... one way is to use user privalages .....
the other way is to delete the icons in the startbar and the start menu bars ..... and in the cuick load bar.....
also you can make the icon of outlook as hidden .....
cuick and easy.......
