Two Personal Folders in Outlook 2003

Discussion in 'Microsoft Outlook' started by Robin Blackwell, Apr 3, 2004.

  1. Hi all,

    I have just finished rebuilding my PC, installing Office 2003 (including
    Outlook 2003), and importing my old Outlook datafile (Outlook.pst).

    I somehow seem to have ended up with two copies of Personal Folders in my
    Outlook Folder List, each containing identical information. I can't seem to
    see any way to delete one copy. Can anyone help please?

    Thanks,

    Robin

  2. you have ghosts in your profile - the easiest way to fix it is to make a new
    profile - and instead of importing, use File, Open or Data file management
    to use the old pst.

    Great news that there is a solution to this problem - I've had it too.
    However, I do not understand the instructions to solve it.
    Do I go to Control Panel>Mail>Show Profiles and delete the only
    Profile there and then Add it back? I tried to Remove what was there,
    and it didn't go away.
    Thanks
