  • How to clear a task, if the directory does not exist?

    I’m sorry if the topic sound a bit vague, but it’s the only way I can think of describing the problem I have.

    OS: MS XP Prof, ver5.1.2600, SP 2, Build 2600
    Outlook: MS Outlook® 2003 (11.6568.8122) SP2

    With reference to the attached picture:



    In our work environment, we are assigned “Tasks” via Outlook. Once a task is completed, it’s automatically sent back to the originator for further distribution. My profile is setup such that all my mail and tasks are archived. For some reason or the other, I noticed that some of the archived tasks have been deleted, but they are still listed in the index window. If I select to delete these tasks (not the icon of these specific tasks) I get the error message “The Tasks folder could not be found” This error is not present for all my archived tasks, hence the directory (folder) does exist. It’s just that these tasks were either declined or deleted but not updated in the archive folder.

    My questions are:

    1) Is this normal?
    2) How can I get rid of these ‘ghost’ entries?
