Re: Outlook Folders in Webmail

When Outlook is setup with your Bigpond/Telstra account using IMAP some folders from Outlook synch to webmail, and vice versa.
If you delete a folder from Outlook (by right-clicking it and selecting Delete), it may return next time the emails are synched.
There are certain folders that just cannot be deleted in Outlook though.  Same goes in webmail.

If your Outlook is setup using POP3 though, all folders are local and you can delete all of them with exception to the Microsoft Default Folders.   To do this, just right-click the desired folder and select Delete.

I need IDDQD and IDKFA in real life.

Do you need to delete the folder in outlook, or webmail?
