Hello:

In Office 2000, how can I get a guy's folders back off of the server in Outlook? He had mail folders, stored on the server that came up missing when his computer crapped out on him. We were able to get outlook running again, but I can't remember how to pull his mail folders down from the server. I can do it Office XP, I just can't remember how in 2000.

He can see his Inbox and all old mail that was stored there, just can't see his other mail folders.

Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Magus

Hello:

Thanks for the replies. He had to go to a meeting so I had a few minutes to sit in his office and play with Outlook for a while. It was easy, I just couldn't put my fingers on it before.

Obove area of the screen where his mail was listed, I clicked the drop-down arrow next to "Inbox". Under it, I found all of his folders. Then, I simply made shortcuts to those folders in the bar on the left.

Thanks for your help.
