Outlook 2003---What is the point of the Archive Folders?
Posted on 2006-05-24
No idea on how it happened, but I must have clicked "yes" at some point. If I contract all the folders on the left side I have 4 folders,

I use a folder in my mailbox that I created a long time ago to save most of my mail stuff. It's called "Saved Items". Recently I have noticed that items that I had saved in sub-folders of Saved Items are no longer there. Around the same time I noticed that under Archive Folders is a mirror copy of the folder structure that is under "mailbox" and somehow items that had been saved in mailbox/saved items/subfolder have been moved into the same folder/subfolder under the Archive folder. This is making more work for me because I first look in the mailbox subfolder and then in the archive subfolder. Any ideas on what's causing the duplicate folder structure under archive and how I can undo it and get everything moved back where it should be under the mailbox folder? I, obviously can cut and paste and then delete, but I'll bet it will reappear. Under folders in the settings I can see the archive.pst file, I can delete that, but will probably lose the saved items that were already moved. Outlook 2003 is a client of an exchange server 2003
