Sent Items folder renamed "Recovered Folder 80C2"

I have a user whos Outlook 2000 .pst file went over the 2GB limit.  I used the repair tool from Microsoft, used the scanpst.exe, and now everything is just fine after the user deleted a bunch of stuff and compacted the pst.

The only problem remaining is that somewhere during this process the "Sent Items" folder has been renamed "Recovered Folder 80C2."  It's working fine (sent emails are still going to this folder), but I can't figure out how to rename the folder to Sent Items.  Thanks!

Greetings areed68 !

Backup the PST file. Then run this command line to reset folder names.  Go to Start > Run and type

outlook /resetfoldernames

and hit OK to apply.

Hope this helps, war1

Apparently the /resetfoldernames switch is for Outlook XP and later.  I am dealing with Outlook 2000.

Outlook 2000 won't let you change the folder names.  If you are using Outlook Web Access, OWA will let you rename the folder.

areed68, make sure you have all the latest updates for Outlook 2000. It is up to Service Pack 3 and hotfixes.
