I have deleted a folder... how can I find the folder??

Hi to everybody...

I have made a mistake... I have pushed "Alt + Delete" on a folder
instead of on a single e-mail...

Unfortunately I have deleted the whole folder... how can I find the
e-mail lost???

I run Windows 2000 end Outlook XP

Please help me...

Thanks

Vit

I have deleted a com add in by accident but was no longer in use. I now get
error message on every Outlook start up. When I ok the error message Outlook
loads as normal but how can I get rid of the message.
The message is
The add-in"C:Program FilesCommon FilesSage (then rest of path) .dll"
could not be installed or loaded. This problem may be resolved by Detect and
Repair
Unable to load etc
I have tried detect and repair but no joy
Can anyone help

THe folders on the left of the e-mail where you can save your e-mails to. I
have accidentially deleted one of these VERY IMPORTANT folders which contains
all of our employee personnel information for the last 8 years!!!
Any assistance at all will be greatly apprecitated. My I.T. guy said its
GONE...but somehow I believe there is a way to retrieve it.
Thanks

I mistakenly deleted a folder first from Contacts, then from Deleted Items
under Contacts. Any ideas on how to recover?

I have added a second calendar for internal use of vacations/out of office
and want to add the holidays to this calendar as well. They are not showing
up.

How can I find out how many contacts I have in a distribution list?

My email server only allows me to send up to 100 at a time. Is threr a way
to limit the # of people in a distribution list or to tell how many are in
it?

Hi i have created a folder inside my sent items folder so that i can keep
emails sent to sertain people but when it comes to find them i have to run a
search each time because the name of the recipiant is not displayed instead
it just displays my name as that is who the email is from. Is there any way
of changing the view so that i can see who the email was sent to? ( i work
with Outlook 2000)

I'm using Outlook 2002 and I would like to set up a rule when email arrives. I have several email rules. How can I set up a custom rule where if the incoming mail does not fit the criteria of all my other rules, it will be sent automatically to a folder i specify, like the deleted items folder?

I'm using outlook 2003. I have some mail folders which point to pst files in
other machines. When those other machines are disconnected from the LAN, how
can I find the path of those pst files since the properties of those mail
folders are disabled? Also, when the outlook starts, it will try to locate
those pst files. Is there a way to stop outlook from looking for those pst
files but not removing those mail folders from my outlook?

Some threads go on for days/months and others I have no interest in. How
can I stop them from loading everytime I read a newsgroup.?? TIA

Searching for mail based on particular criteria is easy enough, but I'm
having trouble searching for folders within Outlook. I have to manage my
mail pretty carefully, and have many hundreds of folders.

How can I search for a particular folder, rather than a particular email?

Hi:
I accidentally deleted a folder I created under OUTLOOK TODAY [Personal

Is there any way I can retrieve/restore this folder and its contents?
Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

Because my laptop isn't working anymore, I bought a new laptop with W7 and Office 2007. My old laptop had WXP and Office 2007. I removed the hard drive from the old laptop and connect it with the new laptop. Then I import de pst file from the old hard drive to the new laptop. All the mails and folders including inbox and outbox are imported under the folder personal files. So I have now two folders inbox; one in the folder personal files and the original one made by Outlook 2007. How can I move the files from the old inbox to the new inbox so I only have just one inbox?

Thanks
