  • 3. Outlook -"Move to Folder" tool button.
    I was getting a list of my most recent folders when clicking this tool bar button from an open email. It seems to have frozen up about 2 weeks ago and won't "update" any longer (only shows the recent folders as they were from about 2 weeks back when the function appears to have frozen). I'm Using Office 2003 and have done a reinstall to fix errors..then removed the tool button and returned it to my NO recent folders are shown, just a list of ALL my folders. How do I restore this is an extemely handy tool for my purposes and now creates a lot more work for me without it.

    It is very good that we can protect our files by a persnal password. However I wish, if we aill be able to protect any kind of folder by a password. This will eliminate for assigning of password for each file, instead all such files can be kept in one folder also it is difficult to remeber many passwords.

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Somehow when transferring old emails from one IBM T40 to the My Documents folder on another, identical, IBM T40, much of the body of the text of an old Outllook email message somehow became part of the file name.  XP will not let me delete the file and gives me an error message that the file name is too long for the Recycle Bin ... and it will not let me rename it or move it either.  It is in a subfolder of My Documents and I have tried deleting all of the folders above it as well and I get the same message.

I have been on the phone for several hours with IBM Techinical Support and they have no solution as well, other than to call Microsoft.

5.Can you retrieve-If you DELETE the file 'Inbox' from the Recycle bin on desktop

I was trying to delete some files that involved several 
pop-up banner ads & windows from interfering with my 
search for telecommuting jobs.  While clicking around on 
the internet, somehow this SPYWARE program began to write 
itself on to my hard drive, so I went into Windows 
Explorer to FIND FILES or FOLDERS to find it & DELETE 
whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I 
ended up sending these files to the RECYCLE BIN on my 
desktop to get rid of them.  However, in the process of 
DELETING them, I also deleted a file 'Inbox' that I 
thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to 
retrieve these emails I accidentally deleted!!!  PLEASE 
HELP ME!  These were very important emails regarding 
employment!  Thank you.
