Microsoft Outlook 2013 - Can't Delete, Move, or Rename Folders

Posted on 2014-04-17

I use MS Outlook 2013 as my mail client on my laptop. It's "hooked" up to my Mail Server at GoDaddy. When I try to delete, move, or rename any of the folders in my Outlook Inbox, I get a message telling me that it (a) can't delete, (b) can't move, or (c) can't rename the folder because it is full (which is not true).

I am able to create folders.

Any ideas?

Create a new pst file

Can you save you current inbox calendar notes etc to a pst file?

If so export them to a pst file save them on your desktop

Then create a new pst file and then check to see if you can rename move or delete folders

After that then you can import you information from the exported pst files
