Navigation pane groups
Outlook 2003 and up offer an option to make New Groups (in the Navigation Pane) and quite a few users aren’t quite sure what they should do with them.

I use groups hold calendars I don’t want to see in the Navigation pane and to keep certain colleagues calendar’s together. If I need to see the calendars, its one click on the down chevrons to show the folders and one click on the up chevrons to hide then again.

  1. Click Add New Group and type a name in the field.
  2. Drag folders from other groups to this group.

More Information

With Outlook 2007  or 2010, you won’t be able to delete folders from the Navigation pane – deleting from the navigation pane deletes the folder from your mailbox or PST. Instead, you’ll need to move folders to a new group then collapse it.
