I had created a hierarchy of folders under the 'Inbox' of one of my accounts. While creating Message Filters, I was prompted for two folders that I had accidently created. [I had tried to create a folder that included an oblique '/' in the name, viz. 'Java/C++'. Thinking that the '++' might be the problem, I changed it to 'Java/Cpp', which resulted in the undeletable folder 'Cpp'. I created the second folder in a similar manner.] When I tried to delete the unwanted names, I went through the dialogue via right-clicking the mouse and selecting 'Delete Folder' and confirming my wish, but nothing appears to happen. The names remained. I tried to delete other folders. There was _no_ problem; I could delete them. I then tried to rename the undesired folders to something that I might be able to delete. The message that was returned was 'The folder could not be renamed. Perhaps the folder is being reparsed, or the new name is not a valid folder name.' I have left it there, and will just live with the unwanted folders until further notice. Thank you.
