Creating Mail Folders on Left side of Microsoft Office Outlook 2007

Not open for further replies.


I have on several occasions LOST a Folder that I had created for dragging emails into for future reference. These Folders seem to just DISAPPEAR - one day a folder is listed (as a Sub-Folder) and a day or two later, there is absolutely no sign of it . Getting very Frustrated! Does anyone have a solution as to where they go and how to retrieve them? I've tried the "Search" feature from the Start button on my desktop but can't find them. I thought maybe they are automatically shuffled into an 'Archives' or the like but my Archives Folder is Empty. ???? Thanks for any assistance.

I suggest you look at the Folder List view of the Navigation Pane (that's the left side of Outlook 2007). Click the tiny Folder icon in the bottom left corner.

Now have a thorough look - you should find your folders.

You can also try using the Command Line Switch to reset the Navigation Pane - it may have become corrupted and stopped showing all folders.
