In Outlook 2010, my drafts folder shows 64 messages but when I click on the folder, there is nothing in it. I check 'Mark all as read' and it does nothing. It still shows 64 messages.

How do I clear this notification?

Thank you.

Have you tried the /cleanviews command line switch? More info

Be sure to read the linked to article from the above link too - if you have created custom views, they'll be removed.

I will give it a shot, although I have not created any custom views. Thank you. – winarm Feb 8 '11 at 21:34
The custom views comment was only a warning that if you did have any they would get removed. Did this work? – G_P Feb 9 '11 at 12:47
It did work. Thank you kindly – winarm Feb 23 '11 at 16:51
