Empty Folder Finder for Outlook

NOTE: This is a beta release of the product.  Although we’ve done our best to make sure that it is fully tested, it is still a beta release.  The software is provided “as is”, without warranty of any kind, express or implied.

Empty Folder Finder for Outlook is an add-in that does just that.  It finds all the empty folders that are left-over after message cleanup or archiving and allows you to decide if you’d like to delete them.  This tool is perfect for the self-proclaimed “neat freak”, or someone who likes to keep an extra tidy mailbox.

Empty Folder Finder for Outlook provides these features:

Quick, quiet operation. It only runs when you tell it to.  Otherwise it sits patiently in the Outlook ribbon (toolbar) waiting for your beck and call.

Safe disposal.  Your mailbox is important to you.  We don’t want you deleting stuff on a whim.  Just in case you get a little hasty, we move empty folders to your Deleted Items so they can be deleted permanently only when you’re ready.  Empty Folder Finder for Outlook will never permanently deleted something on it’s own.
