Hi Likewise I get a report error : -

Task '*email name* Folder:Inbox Synchronizing headers.'
reported error (0x80040604) : 'A folder by this name already exists.'

I can get rid of it by removing the hotmail account from Outlook and
shutting restarting then adding hotmail account again. This works for a
couple of restrts of the computer before reverting to the fault again.

Does any one know a fix or work around, apart from deleting the hotmail
account and again setting it ?
