    How to Remove Folders from Office 365 Outlook


    There are numerous rubbish folders on Outlook email addresses including 3 RSS Feed folders,
    they take up a log of room and are just not required.
    I've looked everywhere I can but even Microsoft (as usual) don't give an answer even though the
    questioner added at the bottom:
    "To be clear, I want to delete the folder, not the subscriptions (which I don't have any). "

    And typical of MS they gave a link on how to remove the subscriptions.

    I have a picture of what I mean. The Outlook email account is the top one and what I would like is
    as the account underneath which has 3 folders compared with 12 in Outlook.

  2. Support for hierarchical folders in Office 365

    Interesting.

    I set up a trial Office 365 account yesterday.

    Indeed, nested folders can be set up within Office 365 online and in Outlook. On my Windows 7 Phone, however, if I choose the "show all folders" option, it DOES shos a list of all folders and displays the list hierarchically - if you sync a folder, then
    the contents seems to be retrieved and the list of synced folders shows only a flat list of folders. Good enough for me - my worry, was that lower-level nested folders would not be displayed or synced at all. It seems to work fine.

    Let's hope that going forward to Mango will not remove this functionality.

  3. Support for hierarchical folders in Office 365

    I currently use a Windows 7 phone together with OfficeSmallBusinessLive and I am currently evaluating a shift to Office 365.



    One limitation that I face with OfficeSmallBusinessLive is that the list of folders that I create in Outlook (as my PC email client) can ONLY be a flat list of folders and not a hierachically organised or nested list, as I would be able to do with a full
    Microsoft Exchange server or previously with BPOS.



    Two questions therefore:

    - does Office 365 support hierarchically nested folders in mail?

    - ditto for the Windows Phone?

  4. How to Remove Folders from Office 365 Outlook

    subfolders have disappeared in outlook on office 365

    ok - so yes its a IMAP type account as its apple (.me) so the first bit I cant do.

    When i follow your instructions to try and repair office 365, i can open up control panel as you suggest, but Microsoft Office 365 is not in the list of programs so i cant run a repair.

    If I go to Settings, Apps, I can find Microsoft Office Desktop Apps in the list.

    If I click on that and then Advanced Options there is a "repair" option, I have ran that - but it made no difference.

    I have also then tried the "reset" option, this just completely removed outlook - which I can no longer see at all.....

    I can see the subfolders if I go into mail rather than outlook - but I now have no other accounts - I will have to reset all my accounts up....

    Why is outlook no longer working?
