    Had to reestablish my email accounts in Outlook Office 365 due to an update with my Yahoo business email accounts. I elected to make this an IMAP account. I had a folder that contained information that I could not afford to lose. I managed to copy the folder from an POP/STMP account and paste it into may new IMAP account. Unfortunately I now have numerous issues with the account because it says I do not have appropriate permission to do anything in the folder. Checking properties claims it is a folder containing IMAP items, and does not give me the AutoArchive tab or show folder properties. Since I cannot put items into the folder, delete items from the folder, archive items, etc. it is basically a useless folder that I cannot get rid of.

    Temporarily boot and run a different Operating System from a Live CD/USB:

    A Live CD/DVD or USB flash drive contains a complete bootable computer operating system (OS). When you boot a computer from it, the OS loads into, and then runs from memory instead of a hard drive. This allows you to run an OS without installing it or making any changes to a computer's current configuration.

    To create one, download an ISO file containing the OS you want to use, (such as Ubuntu, Slax or Zorin), then use something like ISO Recorder to burn it to a CD/DVD or USB key.

    Now boot your computer from this disc/key and your computer will be running that OS instead of the one on its hard drive. Use its File Manager to browse to and delete the folder you want gone.​

    When you're done, simply reboot your PC from the hard drive like you normally would.

    Unfortunately this is an EMAIL SUBFOLDER and not one I can see without starting my Office 365 Outlook.

    Sorry to hear that. Hopefully someone else will be along soon with some other ideas to try.
