Give us the ability to remove folders we don't use. Many of us do not use the "group", "conversations" or various other folders that Outlook automatically installs and will let us delete. Users should be able to remove any folder they don't want.
1. I've worked so many jobs using Outlook by now and never a single day have I ever needed or wanted "Conversation History", "RSS Feeds", "Search Folders" or "Groups" it's distracting and should be possible to remove permanently.
2. We should be able to hide other folders unless needed (Outbox, Junk Email, Sent Items, Deleted Items)
It all produces a User Experience of a ton of clutter to stare at and the added annoyance of being unable do anything about - it could be so much more streamlined and aid everyone's concentration.
These cumbersome folder structures we've never needed and that we've been frustrated about for years and still cannot remove need to be finally addressed. We're moving into an age of competition with simpler interfaces but Outlook still lags behind with the antiquated idea that you have to force the user into things they don't want... please address this user experience issue.

I agree. I have 2 email addresses and with all these extra unused folders I can't delete, I have to scroll further and further down just to be able to see my other email folders. Why do you assume we all have the same requirements--just let us add the folders we need not the folders you need.

Couldn't agree more. I had old, deleted, calendars hanging out in the depths of the deleted folder and therefore giving me event notifications even though those calendars were no longer in my calendar list.
Also completely agree. I for example never use RSS-Feeds.
Completely agree. I would like to use my mailbox as I see fit. I thought the whole purpose of windows was to allow the users to control their content. It honestly makes me a little bit angry every time I see those folders I can't get rid of.
