When you delete a single instance of a meeting from a recurring appointment, your Inbox folder may be renamed to the Subject line of the meeting request.


If you have upgraded from a previous version of Outlook, you may have the Exchng32.exe program on your hard disk. If this is the case, you can rename the Inbox by using this program.

Note: With a clean installation of Outlook 2000 on Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), you might not have the Exchng32.exe program.

To revert the mis-named Outlook Inbox folder to its original state, follow these steps:

  1. After you close Outlook 2000, click Start, point to Run, type exchng32.exe, and then press ENTER.
  2. In the left panel of the Exchange Client application, right-click on the mis-named folder, and then click Rename.
  3. Type Inbox, and then press ENTER to rename the folder.
  4. Close the Exchange Client application and restart Outlook.

To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).
