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?

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.

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
