Hi,

I've take a look around but I can't find a straight-forward answer on how to go about emptying the Sync Issues \ Local Failures folder in Outlook 2003.  Is this even possible?

Thanks

They will dissapear when there's no sync issues. I use to delete them manually.
You can delete the user profile and recreate it. Sync will then start from scratch creating a new .ost file

Thanks peakpeak.  Is that the only way to manually delete them?  By deleting / recreating the user profile?

Nope, just delete the messages. Did a few myself today.

The Sync Issues folder isn't showing in the All Mail Folders window.  I found out about it through Mailbox Properties --> Folder size, but I can't delete the folder contents from there.
