    What are the default folder names in Outlook 2016?


    I'm going insane, and just spent 35 minutes in chat w/MS, to no avail. *Mad I am on a clean install of Win10, with a new install of Office 365 with Outlook. Earlier today, a MS tech remotely set up my 3 Outlook accounts. Then she tried to import merge data from my .pst backups. Had problems...something to do with POP and IMAP and other things I don't understand. She ended up adding my external back-up drive as another data source, so I have two XXXX's Folder structures in my new email account. One from My PC and one from the back-up drive. I have been manually copying stuff from the backup folders to the new folders. It's a real pain, but it's working...and I have my data.

    My (what I thought was SIMPLE) question was this: In the "new account" data (allegedly NOT from backup drive), I have, for instance, a Trash folder, a Junk folder, a Junk Mail folder and a Junk Email folder. I also have Sent, Sent Items and Sent Mail . All I want to know is what are the default folder names for this version. I'm sure that somewhere, that I can't find, is something that says that the "former Junk folder is now named Trash" or something like that. I just want to get rid of the multiple folders. Is that too much to ask?

    :)

  2. E52 + Mail for Exch: Unable to complete command

    We have managed to resolve this issue. There was a problem with this user's default folders - her "drafts" folder had somehow been moved into her inbox. At the same time her folders had Norwegian names whereas our Exchange server and Outlook versions are
    all in English.



    Hence, having the right folder names and structure is of utmost importance.

  3. Can't sync Cingular 3125 with Outlook 2007 and Vista

    Follow the steps below to create a new pst file:

    On the File menu, point to New, and then click Outlook Data File.

    For compatibility with earlier versions of Outlook, under Types of storage, click
    Microsoft Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders File (.pst), and then click
    OK
    .

    In the File name box, type a name for the file, and then click OK.

    In the Name box, type a display name for the .pst folder.

    Select any other options you want, and then click OK.

    The name of the folder associated with the data file appears in the Folder List By default, the folder will be called Personal Folders.

    Drag any item from your current folders to the new folder. Press CTRL while dragging to copy items instead of moving them.

    What are the default folder names in Outlook 2016?

    OK, had a DUH! moment this morning. Just wait and see which ones are populating, then delete the others. Sure not happy about how the set up was handled. Discovered this morning that my calendar and address books are missing. Not in the outlook account and no longer on my backup drive. sigh.
