    Contacts and drafts folder (Outlook 2000)

    I'm running Outlook 2k in Corporate/Workgroup mode on Exchange Server. One of my users accidentally moved their "Contacts" folder. It's now a subfolder under their inbox. They also managed to move their "Drafts" folder. It's now a subfolder of their deleted items. When I try to move them back I get a message saying they can't be moved. (If that's true, how did the user do this in the first place?) Anyway, does anyone know how I can move the contacts and drafts folders back to where they belong? Thanks.

    Can you set up a new folder for Contacts and Drafts and then use File/Import and Export to import them back where they belong? Then maybe the subfolders could be deleted.

    You could try a right click on the folder and choose move. You could try starting Outlook via Start | Run and use the switch /ResetFolders. If the latter works you'll get new folders where they belong and can copy data from the old folders into the new ones.

    Thanks for the /ResetFolders switch. That did the trick.
