#1
Outlook 2003 on WXP Pro SP3. When I am using outlook I have several inbox

subfolders expanded. When I exit and re-open outlook they are all closed /

contracted again with only the Inbox showing. Is there a way to preserve the

view with the folders expanded.

No, there is no such option to control that. Depending on the mail account

type that you are using, the folder state is preserved.

Do you mean the default folder state is preserved or is the folder view you

created supposed to be preserved? Outlook connects to an MS Exchange Server.

Thanks for any help provided

The folder state itself is preserved so expanded folders upon closing of

Outlook are still expanded when starting Outlook again. I've just verified

that this also works with Outlook 2003 with Cached Mode enabled. There could

be various reasons for it not "sticking". Errors in your ost-file and

Outlook not closing correctly are the main causes I would inspect.

Check your ost-file for errors with scanost.exe.

See http://www.msoutlook.info/question/77

Also see how Outlook behaves when starting in Safe Mode;

Start-> Run; outlook.exe /safe
