Hi,

we're using Outlook 2010 in connection with Exchange 2010 and we wanted to offer some forms for employees. The easiest way, I thought, was to select the central-folder manually in Outlook once and then use the saved folder in the "Search in" list. This works, but I didn't find a way to delete unused folders from that list again. I tried several switches to start Outlook with, but they didn't help.

Here's a screenshot of the window I'm talking about:

I hope someone can help me with this issue

oh, did i misread and you want to delete from the MRU list in that drop down menu? I think its a reg key - i'll check on it.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Office Explorer - delete the namespaces key. You can't edit so - if there are any folders you want listed, you'll need to browse to add them back.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Office Explorer - delete the frame key. You can't edit so - if there are any folders you want listed, you'll need to browse to add them back.
I had to delete the namespace key too, but now it's clean again.

Thank you very much :)

As an FYI, the value is in the namespaces key, not frames. It was a 'fingers moved faster than brain' typo. sorry about that. It certainly doesn't hurt to remove both keys though - outlook recreates them as needed.
