How do I convert a complete Outlook folder into a single PDF?

Adobe Acrobat Standard and Pro version 9 had a feature that would allow a user to convert a complete Outlook folder into a single Adobe PDF file. It was done with just the click of a button in Outlook 2003-2010.
When Outlook was upgraded to version 2013 and Acrobat moved to version X and XI, I am unable to see this feature anymore.
Is this feature still available and just hidden from view or did Adobe get rid of it? This was a very useful option for our company. I have looked at other products that say they do this but the final PDF is not as useful as what it was in the original.
Can anyone help with this please?

It works fine in Outlook 2013 with Acrobat XI Pro (I don't know about XI Std). There's an ADOBE PDF tab that has a Selected Folders drop-down. It looks like this:

Outlook 2013 create PDF of folders
Selecting Create New PDF... gives this:

Convert folders to PDF
Tick the folder(s) you want — works a charm! Creates a single PDF file that is a portfolio with a header line (From, Subject, Date, Attachments, Size) for each email in the folder(s). Clicking a header shows, of course, the entire email in the lower pane. Note that it also has a check-box to include subfolders. Regards, Joe
