If you add or delete an Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) folder
using an e-mail client other than Outlook Express, the folder change may
not appear in Outlook Express.
Outlook Express does not synchronize its folder list with the list of
folders on an IMAP server each time it is started. You must manually
perform this synchronization.
To manually synchronize the Outlook Express folder list with the folder
list on an IMAP server:
Outlook Express 4.0, 4.01
- Right-click the IMAP server node in the folder list.
- Click Refresh Folder List.
Outlook Express 5
- Click the IMAP server node in the folder list.
- Click IMAP Folders.
- Click Reset List.
- Click the folder name in the folder list, and then click Show.
- Click OK.
