I have an AT&T captivate running Android 2.1. I have setup my phone to sync with my corporate exchange server and it's working flawlessly.
I have recently cleaned up my exchange folder list and have removed several sub folders on the inbox. The folders that I have deleted in exchange are still being displayed in the email app on my Android phone. How do I get rid of the folders on my phone that I have deleted on the exchange server?
Thanks,
Mark

Not sure, if you are exhausting the other troubleshooting steps...want to break the partner-ship with the exchange server and then reconfigure a new android profile?

I have already tried to break the partnership by removing the corporate email account, power cycling the phone and recreating the corporate account, but when I setup the account again, the folders re-appear.

I figured out what that forthe foldersto be compeltely removed, I needed to empty the deleted items folder. Once I emptied the deleted items, the folders are removed from my phone.
