I am using Outlook 2007, but seem to have some unnecessary Folders that are cluttering the screen.  Just want some advice how to get rid (or retire them) so that only the folders that I need and use display.
I have the following folders ; (1) Jegajothy@msn.com; (2) MSN from Jul 11; (3) Personal Folders; (4) Personal Folders; (5) Personal Folders (6) Verizon from Jul 11.
Folder (1) is the current folder that is in use where all the incoming emails arrive at including the junk mail.  The other folders were created at some point in the past and no new emails are going into them.
I would like to keep (1) as the current folder and possibly retire the others.  What is the best way of doing it, keeping in mind that if at some point I need to retrieve something from them, it will still be available.  Any suggestions.
I have 2 email accounts, the msn and the verizon.  But the msn is the default email account from which I send and receive emails while the others are dormant.
