    Deleted Items Folder in Personal Folder (Outlook 2000)

    Can you tell me how to remove a Deleted Items Folder that is inside of a newly created Personal Folder. I was doing the Clean Up of Outlook according to WOW for MM, and I created the new personal folders file and I was given a deleted items folder there and would like to get rid of it.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Sorry, you can't because it's a core item. Items you delete will go there.

    I may have miss spoke the issue. This is a deleted items folder in a Personal Folders file. I know I can not delete the one up with Inbox, Task..., but I thought you could delete the one form a Personal Folders area?

    Thanks

    Is there any way to have this folder automatically empty on exit? (outlook 98). I can do it with the one in the inbox but not in personal folders. It's probably a feature, rather than a bug, but it would be useful.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can't exactly do what you want. But you can set a schedule and choose to permanently delete or move to another folder. Next best thing?

    Right click the deleted items folder, choose properties, AutoArchive tab.

    You can't. I sympathize, when my company set up a WAN fax system, the fax mailbox (admittedly a Server side inbox, not what you are asking about), by default has calendar and task folders, which AFAIC are vestigial and useless.
