Please allow us to get rid of this 'Conversation History' folder. I have no use for it and it just takes up space.
Allow us to remove the 'Conversation History' folder. I have no use for this and never will. Please allow us to delete it.
Thanks for your patience. We’re putting Hiding the “Conversation History” folder (and other empty, unused folders) under consideration, for possible Outlook.com improvements.

This is soooo annoying. I have my folders arranged in a very specific way and every few days these **** undeletable folders rearrange themselves and mess everything else up.
Make an option to hide/delete RSS Subscriptions, Conversation History, and Archive.
Unable to delete RSS folder
Can we please get rid of this completely unnecessary “Conversation History” folder. Just like thousands of others, we don’t use it, we don’t want it, so we should have the option to remove it.
Maybe Microsoft will actually start caring when we leave and stop using their services. Pretty sure that’s what I am about to do!
found this thread when googling how to hide this cr*p... disappointed to see there isn't an option and users being ignored.
It's unbelievable that Outlook users can't customize the UI. Instead, there's all of this clutter that isn't necessary. Gmail makes it easy to organize folders. I have to use Outlook for work and I truly hate it.
Agree along with Archive - both pointless and they get in the way of my folder choices.
Just for good housekeeping, Archive is a bad idea as hundreds if not thousands of emails could end up in this Misc folder. Better to let users create meaningful folders of their choice, so they can quickly locate the files they want.
I want to hide the RSS folder and the Conversation History folder.

make it a choice not a default. some of us want the History.
Wish I had never started to use outlook.....just get rid of conversation history that sits in the middle of my other folders ; cant even move it....... convoluted piece of shoit

A year and a half later and of course, Microsoft is ignoring its users by not providing any option to get rid of it... or to hide it.
Give us an option to hide the OBNOXIOUS Archive and Conversation History folders and any other folders we choose to hide!
1. Annoying that if you create a Sub-folder when you favorite the parent, the sub-folder (child) isn't visible at the top along with the parent!
2. Too many categories in the list that I don't care about / don't use and no way to move or delete them so it's less junky (ex: conversation history, starred, archive, drafts, junk mail etc all at the top of the folder list and I can't move them so my important stuff is at the top)
How about just a screen where you can hide system folders that you don't use

Provide option to remove the Conversation History and Archive folders. Not necessary. Have all my conversations filed in the folders I want.
I agree, archive is useless. Please stop giving us folders that we can't remove and don't want

The inability to permanently delete this unwanted, unasked for, and useless folder should go down as one of Microsoft better decisions (sarcasm intended)
I lost one folder and found two folders that I did not create and wish to delete. These are Conversation History and Unwanted.
How can I get back my lost folder. Important emails in this folder!
Cannot remove maps "Gespreksgeschiedenis"en "Gepland"
I don't need the archive and conversation history!!!!! I will probably switch to gmail (which i don't even like). It drives me crazy just looking at those useless things
