Outlook 2003, lock folder list

In outlook 2003 you can choose the Folder List to appear on the left side panel...

In the older versions of Outlook, there was a "stick pin" icon you could access to "lock" the folder view
in position...

Is there any way to "lock" the folder view so as to not easily change it???

Thanx
Steve

Greetings, stevem5000 !

To force users to see a custom view when they open a public folder:
-- Create the custom view, choosing the "On this folder, visible to everyone" option
-- On the Properties dialog for the folder, on the Administration tab, select your view as the initial view on the folder.
-- Choose View | Current View | Define Views, and at the bottom of that dialog, check the box for "Only show views created for this folder."

http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.exchange2000.admin/browse_thread/thread/aa328cd00a8e73cb/c386868267b6b928?lnk=st&q=outlook+lock+folders+view&rnum=5&hl=en#c386868267b6b928

But there is no way natively within Outlook to lock the folders view on the left panel.

Best wishes!

Caddlady...

By unchecking everything except the folder list...then  you cannot accidently click one of those views in the
Navigation pane...and that was exactly my problem...

Good solution...Many thanx...
