There are at present count more than 32 folders that have appeared in the Outlook archive PST.

I can only see a portion of the name:
the file so that changes to the file will be reflected in your item.1

How can this condition be repaired?  Does it have to do with Outlook automatic archiving?


I've attached a screen shot.
The account is a POP account - no Exchange server involved.


Thanks.

You can disable the Norton Anti-spam filter in Outlook 2010 as follows:

    In File > Options click the tab Add-ins
    On the bottom In the Outlook options window you will find Manage.
