    In Outlook 2007 all the folders under inbox cannot be deleted. I get a message "Cannot delete this folder. Right-click the folder, and then click properties to check your permissions for the folder. See the folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions. Folder is full."

    I am the administrator (the only user of this computer). When I right click on the folder and look at Administration tab the buttons associated with permissions are greyed out.

    What do I need to do the delete folders maually added by me under the inbox

    Thanks Keith Lingenfelter

    My only thought right now is to close out of Outlook and delete the .ost file. If the inbox is located in a pst file, then the pst if full potentially.

    Thanks

    I figured out that pst files created under outlook 2003 or earlier are limited to about 2 gbyte size. I made new pst files under outlok 2007 and copied and imports emails, tasks and caledar dates and am OK now.
