Deleting a folder.

I don't have the program here, so just two guesses.
- Select it and press delete-key.
- Select it and see if there's a delete or remove option if you right-click on it.

Are you talking about the Windows Live Mail program, running on your PC in pop3 mode?
Or a webmail service that runs in your browser?

In reply to: Does this apply?

Not really - I have just tried that and the menu does not give me that option.

Also, I do not want to get rid of all the folders its just the ones that are no longer any use to me.

Very many thanks.

Which folders are these?
by John.Wilkinson / September 15, 2010 10:36 PM PDT
In reply to: ot really

Most folders are deletable, while others can only be hidden and a select few will always be displayed, regardless of your preferences. Thus, we'll need to know which folders these are in order to provide a conclusive answer.

Let us know.

Hidden?
by eliz6beth / September 16, 2010 1:28 AM PDT

For example the folder I want to delete had informatin regarding Paragon.

I have just tried to delete the image shack one now and whilst I can delete the contents I cannot delete the folder

Does this make sense to you. I can live with them but would like to get rid of them
