Hi Everyone

The old IT manager did a ton of ms updates right before he left. As a result we now have a junk mail folder as well as a sync issues folder. I want to disable or delete these folders. We run windows 2003 with exchange. This has gone out to all of our users. ALl users have outlook 03. Here is a cap of what mine looks like. The users dont check these folders and they fill up with tons of emails putting them over their limit.

Just click on View--> Mail. Or Go--> mail and you won't see the 'Sync Issues' folder.

Were you running in Outlook cached mode before he left or not?

MegaNuk3 is correct that you can just simply not view them. However if you would like to disable them from being used all together, you can disable them from group policy in AD.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I want to disable them since they fill up with email. All users were and are in cached mode. I looked at the updates list and he did well over 100 updates. As you can see searching thru these one at a time isnt going to work. How or where do i find the group policy in AD?

I'm trying to avoid doing the mail manager clean up. I would prefer to disable these folders like they used to be.

If you were in cached mode before then you would of had both folders... Which one is filling up? Check the size of them and see which one is taking up more space.

I'd concentrate on clearing them down instead of hiding them.
