I was wondering if there is a way to change public folder type (from calendar to mail items) after it was created. There are no items in it but it does have several sub-folders. I would like to change the folder type from calendar to mail (without affecting the sub-folders)

Is that possible or do i need to delete and then create the new folder with the new type.

Thank you in advance.

Hi, sonicrelay.

You'll need to create a new folder of the correct type.  Once you've created the new folder you should be able to move the sub-folders under the original folder to the new folder.
