Hi Experts,

When I open my Outlook 2003 client (not using Exchange) with imap, I don't want all my Personal Folders showing (I just want the plus sign showing) and I would like all my Imap folders showing (right now all I get is the plus sign next to my Inbox.  Is there any way to do this?  Thanks.

Best you can do is go to Tools/Options and click the tab "Other".  Then click "Advanced Options".  Click "Browse" under general settings, minimize the Personal Folders and maximize your IMAP connection.  Highlight your IMAP Inbox and click "Ok".

If I remember correctly, 2003 doesn't store the collapsed/uncollapsed setting, but 2007+ does.
