    Personal Folder (OL98)

    How do I delete a personal folder? I moved the PST file to another location and can not get rid of the old personal folder refererence.

    Thanks,
    John

    Re: Personal Folder (OL98)

    John, with Outlook 98 it would be helpful to know if you are using Corporate/Workgroup Mode or Internet Mode Only - this is specified under Help, About. Generally there are two steps to removing a PST; the first is removing it as an Outlook Information Store/Service, and the second is deleting it via File Explorer; how the first step is done depends on the Mode, and I can't recall how to remove a service in IMO Mode in OL 98. (Which is why I didn't respond, I hoped someone else would.) Your question is a bit confusing where you say that you moved the PST but you want to get rid of it. Did you relocate your PST and then Outlook automatically create a new one for you that you don't want? Or do you want to delete an old PST file? Post back with more detail if you still need help.

    John's asking because there are differences from inside the Outlook interface (e.g., Tools>Accounts... vs. Tools>Services...). I think you also can add and delete PSTs from Outlook's awareness using the Mail control panel. Does this help?
