Windows 7: Search and Deleted Items folders in Outlook 2010 pst files

Search and Deleted Items folders in Outlook 2010 pst files

Is is possible to either delete or hide the "search folders" and "deleted iems" folders that appear in each pst file created?

We use individual pst files to file our emails per current job. But the folders above take up a lot of visual space in the toolbaro it would be preffered to hide or delete them.

We do not use either to "file" emails so the compact now option in the data file managment dialog box does not really apply since I believe this is really a benefit when the file is archived.

Annoyitated - Try this:

There are two "Navigation Views" which can be displayed in the OL 2010 Navigation Pane.
  1. "Classic tree view": All open PSTs are listed in alphabetical order and, when expanded, display meaningful folders as well as the folders you want to hide but can not.
  2. "Favorites view": The favorites view has two sections. Favorites appear in a flat tree in the top half and PSTs appear in the bottom half and behave just like the classic view.
  3. Toggle between Navigation Views Select any Top level PST folder | View Tab | Navigation Pane (there are other techniques to toggle between layouts you can explore on your own)

Adding a Favorite: Any Folder or SubFolder, of any Type, can be added to the favorites view. NOTE: You Must be in the Favorites View to select a folder to Show in Favorites
  1. Toggle into Favorites View
  2. Right select a folder from your various PSTs
  3. Click "Show in Favorites"
  4. Favorite Folder will appear at bottom of Favorites section
  5. Drag Favorite folder into a desired ordinal position
  6. Collapse all of the PSTs in lower half and you see a clean looking folder navigation list
Problems: I have some 40+ PSTs of which more than 20 of these are generally open. Sometimes Favorites view does not show all of my Favorites because the PSTs consume too much real estate. I haven't tried to understand why - could be memory constraints. I find if I close some PSTs and then reopen OL, they magically reappear.

Hope this helps
