...Outlook 2003: Favorite Folders not saved after quitting
I use OL2003 with an exchange server (Small Business Server).
Each time I add folders to the 'Favorite Folders' section, they disappear
after quitting OL.
Does anybody know what I have to configure to save them?
I activated the 'Cached Exchange Mode' in the MS-Exchange Server

and delete the *.xml file and any *.FAV which might be present.

Favorite Folders are useful to a point. Something that I think would improve
their usefullness would be that if you double clicked on the favorite folder
the active location in the mail folders would go to that folder.
I have a huge number of folders probably around 300 or more and it would
save a great deal of clicking to be able to shortcut to the folder and then
quickly navigate to the folders local to it.

They say you can't do this.
In the little buttons on the bottom, click on the envelope that corresponds
to "Mail." That will get the view back that has the favorite folders and
all mail folder in it.
Click on the little folder to go to regular folder view.

You can't remove it from the Navigation Pane. Use a different view if you
don't want to see it, like Folder List.
