When adding a subfolder to the Microsoft Outlook 97 Folder List, you have an option to "Add shortcut to Outlook Bar" You also have an option for "Don't prompt me about this again." Selecting the "Don't prompt me" option, has no effect. You always see the "Shortcut" question.


This problem does not occur in Outlook version 8.0, 8.01, 8.02 or installed from the Microsoft Office SR-1 Enterprise Update.
