Empty Junk E-mail folder
I'm using Outlook 2003 and noticed that I can only 'Empty Junk E-mail
folder' by right-clicking the folder. There is no such choice in any of the
menus (i.e. File, View, Edit, Tools, etc.) Sometimes it's inconvenient for
me because it's quicker if I can stick with keyboard all along.
Agreed that the options to purge the folder is few and far between. However
you might find it convienant to setup Outlook's auto-archive options to
permantely delete items after so many days.

Try starting Outlook once with the /resetfolders command line switch.
Will she lose any of her other folders if I do that?

that take care of it?

Running OL2003, I've removed an IMAP mail account via the Tools/Email
Accounts procedure, but the high-level IMAP account folder remains
under my "All Mail Folders"/"Personal Folders" list. Whenever I
attempt to delete, or "close", that folder, I am unable to enact any
action. How can one delete a folder from the list after its
associated account has been removed? I guess I assumed this would
have occurred when I removed the account?

Since a relatively short while I am getting the disappearence of my
favourite folders arrangement. I tried succesfully just once by typing
and executing outlook.exe /resetnavpane, but after that I have found no
solutions. Currenlty I have the luck to havn't had the trouble, but I do
not why. Many thanks and greetings.
When the favorites disappear and are reset to default, it usually means
either the file that holds the favorites list or the profile is corrupt. The
/resetnavpane switch usually fixes it.

I have an exchange 5.5 site that has two servers the original and a new

access it from the new server ?
No. You'll need to restore the server and then restore the public folder
store. Then, you can replicate the folders to the new server.
