    What are the default folder names in Outlook 2016?


    I'm going insane, and just spent 35 minutes in chat w/MS, to no avail. I am on a clean install of Win10, with a new install of Office 365 with Outlook. Earlier today, a MS tech remotely set up my 3 Outlook accounts. Then she tried to import merge data from my .pst backups. Had problems...something to do with POP and IMAP and other things I don't understand. She ended up adding my external back-up drive as another data source, so I have two XXXX's Folder structures in my new email account. One from My PC and one from the back-up drive. I have been manually copying stuff from the backup folders to the new folders. It's a real pain, but it's working...and I have my data.

    My (what I thought was SIMPLE) question was this: In the "new account" data (allegedly NOT from backup drive), I have, for instance, a Trash folder, a Junk folder, a Junk Mail folder and a Junk Email folder. I also have Sent, Sent Items and Sent Mail . All I want to know is what are the default folder names for this version. I'm sure that somewhere, that I can't find, is something that says that the "former Junk folder is now named Trash" or something like that. I just want to get rid of the multiple folders. Is that too much to ask?

    OK, had a DUH! moment this morning. Just wait and see which ones are populating, then delete the others. Sure not happy about how the set up was handled. Discovered this morning that my calendar and address books are missing. Not in the outlook account and no longer on my backup drive. sigh.
