Contacts shown in folder pane

Postby knorke » Tue Apr 07, 2009 3:58 am

Hi,
I just upgraded to 4.8 and now I have a "Contacts item" shown
above the "In" folder. How can I get rid of it?

Thanks in advance.

As far as I'm aware it's not possible.
I too would like to get rid of it.
Hopefully that will be made possible in the future.

Same here. It used to be lower in the folder tree near the bottom. It a minor annoyance that I will eventually get used to. I would be nice to have the option move it elsewhere or hide it.

This is exactly the reason I'm on the forums this morning, hoping to find a way to get rid of this. I guess at the present time there is no way :( I keep opening the contacts accidentally instead of the inbox cause the inbox SHOULD be at the top of the list. Hopefully there will be a fix for this even though it's really just an annoyance.

This may or may not be relevant, but I wanted my Contacts listed first with the previous version, because it was a nuisance to constantly scroll to the bottom of the folder list, especially if I had a bunch of folders open. The reason being, that I using my Pocomail contacts as my default contact list rather than bothering to constantly sync with a P.I.M. (Before anyone mentions it, I tried Barca and found it very slow loading, but that's another issue. I use UK's Kalender for a basic fast calendar. The combination of Pocomail and UK's Kalender is perfect for me. I don't need a full blown P.I.M.)

I solved the problem by setting up tabs on my index window, with "Contacts" on the first tab, and "In" folder on the second, with the second tab being the default opening. That eliminated the scrolling issue.

I have my contacts shown as a sidebar below the folders sidebar. I don't even remember how long I've done it this way. I can easily adjust the length of the sidebars. Guess it's just what you're used to, but that folder at the top for contacts just bugs me.

I wonder if it might be because it allows u to take advantage of the enhanced search feature. Maybe not but I did a search on the contacts list (across multiple address books) to find specified contacts.... and it worked beautifully.

Maybe someone from PSI can let us know.

:D

I don't have full background info, but I believe it was simply a feature requested, where the effect of not making it optional wasn't fully foreseen.

What a joke. There's already Contacts at the bottom of the folders pane, there's Contacts as a pinned tab. What the heck is the point?! :?

There's Tools > Options > Advanced > Interface Options > Show Special folders and Show Online Folders, but it didn't occur to anyone that after years of usage, people might be used to the "In" folder being at the top. Hey, let's wait another year and four months, maybe it'll be fixed in the next version. :x
