I Am Totally Baffled

But that's not hard :(
I have a folder created in my Outlook. I've called it "Ebay". A shortcut has been created in the Outlook shortcut bar for easy access. Trouble is, when I click on the shortcut, a message appears saying "unable to open folder" see click here
Strangely, if I click directly on to the folder from the folder list, the information can be accessed okay like this click here
I've tried renaming the folder, moving the contents into a temporary folder then renaming it. I've tried deleting the folder and creating a new one. I just can't get the shortcut to work. Am I being stupid here or what?
Would appreciate ideas from anyone of you clever people out there, Gaz

Have you tried deleting the shortcut, and re-creating it from the folder ?

Many times. BTW I'm using Office XP & Win XP Pro

How weird is that?

Just keyed the error message in Google. Got this link click here
I've spent days until blue in the face trying to work this out. :( Why didn't I do that first?!!

sounds like a restricted access sort of thing. Have you tried renaming the folder ?

I think I'll copyright my ideas. ;-)
